Get Ready for a Big Snowfall
It has been a while since we have seen snow in Metro Vancouver. Some areas are expected to see between 10 to 20 centimeters of snow. This will cause highways, roads, walkways and parking lots to become difficult to navigate due to the accumulating snow according to Environment Canada.
We must adjust our driving with the changing road conditions. Here are some tips on how to drive in the snow:
- Accelerate and decelerate slowly;
- Drive slowly;
- Don’t stop if you can avoid it;
- Don’t power up hills;
- Don’t stop while going up hills;
- Know your breaks;
- Increase the normal dry pavement following distance;
- Stay home!
If you encounter a sheet of black ice, remember to ease off the accelerator and look and steer smoothly in the direction you want to go. Do not brake. This will make the situation worse. Repeat this maneuver until you regain control.
