The CAA Offers Winter Driving Safety Tips

Driving can be tricky when the temperature dips below zero, but the Canadian Automobile Association has some tips on getting around safely this season. 

Gary Howard of the CAA says firstly its important both you and your vehicle are winter-ready. Howard also says you have to remember it's not just you on the roads so when you are driving in bad weather, drive defensively. And you should also adjust your driving to the weather conditions as posted speed limits are only for ideal driving conditions.

He says you should also know you need more braking distance when roads are slippery no matter what type of vehicle you have. For even more safety tips on safe winter driving from the CAA, click here.
