Tips On How To Be Safe While Snowmobiling

For many New Brunswickers, snowy weather means a chance to hop on a snowmobile and hit the trails, but the Mounties warning you not to head out without taking some safety precautions first.

The RCMP say you should check what the weather is going to be.....dress in layers with gloves, a helmet and proper eye protection.......Never ride alone......Let people know your route and when you plan to be back.....Ride sober and don't go too fast......Carry a map and take note the the shelters along the way.......Try not to cross bodies of water but if you have to, wear a life jacket over your winter clothing and never cross in a single file.
