Long Weekend Road Reminder
Prince George, B.C.- Another long weekend lies ahead and that means plenty of folks will be hitting the highways to share Thanksgiving with family or friends.
As is the case with every long weekend, RCMP are reminding drivers to prepare for the journey, first by making sure your vehicle is in good running shape to get you there and back safely and by making sure you have the proper winter tires on your vehicle.
Last year, 22 people were injured in 150 crashes in North Central B.C. on the Thanksgiving long weekend.
Hours of sunlight are reduced this time of the year, and wildlife are on the move.
Check road conditions before heading out so you are better prepared for changing conditions.
As always, whether a long weekend or not, police remind drivers to leave the phone alone unless your vehicle is equipped with a hands free device, or you are able to pull over ( when safe to do so), put the vehicle in park and take the call.
