Winter Driving Tips From Saint John Police

'Tis the season of fishtailing and fender-benders.

Jay Henderson of the Saint John Police Department is offering some tips to drivers to make driving in snow and freezing rain a little safer.

"Clean snow off all windows, headlights and indicator lights, and remove loose snow from roof and truck. Ensure windows are defogged before setting out to drive."

Henderson reminds people that the posted speed limit is ideal for totally perfect driving conditions. Therefore, when there's snow on the ground you have to reduce your speed.
