Safety tips for winter driving

  • Check the weather forecast before travelling.
  • Reduce speed: when road conditions are poor, it takes longer to stop.
  • When approaching railway crossings, turn off your radio and heating fans so you can listen for trains.
  • Look for railway warning signs and signals and remember that snow may cover train tracks at a crossing.
  • Use winter tires.
  • Do not drive impaired: exhaustion, alcohol, and drugs such as marijuana reduce your ability to pay attention, react quickly, and make safe driving choices.
  • Stalls or stuck vehicles must be left behind. Once safe, immediately notify emergency responders by calling 911.
  • Be rail-smart this winter: Stop. Look. Listen. Live.
