Happy Holidays

It is Christmas day today and I just wanted to send out a reminder to respect the roads. Environment Canada predicts that the entire country will be blanketed in snow for the first time since 1971, which means we need to respect the roads.

Here are some simple driving tips to make sure you arrive safely to your destination…

  • Drive according to the conditions – slow down if you have to. Arriving for dinner 10 minutes late is better than not arriving at all (there are always too many accidents on Christmas Eve and Day).
  • Make sure you have enough windshield washer fluid – Visibility is essential to safe driving, make sure you clean your windshield as necessary. Keep an extra bottle of fluid in your car.
  • Carry a good ice scraper – make sure you completely clear your front and rear windshield as well as your lights. By clearing the lights you can see where you are going and people behind you have a better chance of seeing your brake lights
  • Keep blankets in the car – with our extreme weather these days you never know when you will hit a storm and get stuck. Make sure you have blankets, gloves, extra clothes in case you are stuck on the highway somewhere
  • Be polite – it’s the holiday season be cheerful and joyous and wave to people as you pass them

I hope everyone has a very happy holidays, however they chose to celebrate.
