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.
Another long weekend and another reminder from RCMP to leave the phones alone while driving. Obviously these reminders must be for the benefit of those who have been living in a cave or just returned from a visit to another planet because everyone knows the rules, reminders are no longer required, just hammer the idiots with big fines and 10 demerits. Second offence bye bye car for 30 days.
Keep right except to pass!
Now that is a message the RCMP should be conveying!!
They also need to start going after those drivers who don’t turn their lights on. Give them one warning, then next time take their license away, they’re obviously too stupid to be behind the wheel.
