Snow, freezing rain, and poor visibility have made driving a challenge for Northwest motorists Tuesday.
Terrace RCMP have a number of winter driving tips to help people stay safe on the roads.
Constable Angela Rabut says it starts with making sure your vehicle is properly maintained and ready to go.
Rabut says it’s also crucial to drive according to conditions.
If you do end up in the ditch or stuck at the side of the road, having emergency equipment, including clothing and food can make the difference until help arrives.
Rabut says checking road conditions and considering whether it’s worth the risk before you leave home is also a good idea.
