RCMP Conducting Winter Road Checks
Prince George, B.C. – For those of you not convinced by last Friday’s sudden burst of winter, Mounties are reminding motorists to be winter ready before heading out on area roads.
To ensure compliance, the RCMP along with ICBC and CVSE are conducting a road check at the Beaverley Brake Check on Highway 16 West today.
Corporal Madonna Saunderson, media relations spokesperson with North District RCMP, says there are things you can do to prepare your vehicle for driving.
“For your vehicle, install winter tires, have a vehicle maintenance check, change your wiper blades to winter blades, fill the windshield wiper reservoir, ensure the snow and ice is removed from all windows, lights, mirrors, hood and roof.”
She also reminds drivers to maintain a safe following distance and to slow down and drive for the road conditions.
Last week’s snowfall led to traffic chaos with fender benders and minor accidents throughout the city.
