Northern Health is reminding everyone to drive safe as the holiday season wraps up.
Northern Health’s Natasha Thorne says it’s important to know the conditions before you head out.
Thorne says it’s also important to top up items like gas and windshield washer fluid before beginning the commute.
She also notes it’s a good idea to carry an emergency kit with you as highways in the north have long remote stretches.
Northern Health notes that car crashes are more frequent during winter.
Officials are urging motorists to put off plans if conditions are too poor to travel in.
