Prince George, B.C. – If you must drive your car, be careful out there.

Today’s snowfall has led to some slick road conditions and was likely a factor in a crash on the Hart highway during the lunch hour (see previous story here).

And just after 3 p.m. it also led to two separate crashes at Fifth and Queensway – one involving three vehicles, the other two.Luckily there were no injuries.

Ironically, the latter crashes occurred just steps from Service BC where drivers obtain and renew their drivers’ licenses.


It’s definitely slippery out there today! Slow down, turn on your headlights and taillights, put your cellphone down, get your dog off of your lap and pay attention to what you are doing and to others on the roads with you!

After all, the life that you save might be your own!

    True dat!

Called Sitiational Awareness and caution. Damn, gotta quit that Scotch!

My brother and I watched a woman at an intersection and as she put her turn signal on to turn right she pulled out into the intersection and inexplicably turned left instead she is an accident waiting to happen and in this weather it is even worse when you have drivers like her on the road

Winter in Prince George and the snow has made the roads slippery. WHAT?? You’ve got to be kidding!

    Yup news flash to me too.

Can you imagine how many crashes there would be if winter tires were not mandatory?

Clearing the snow off your hood makes seeing a little easier too.

    AND your windows. Never ceases to amaze me how many people are so lazy that they can’t wipe the windows clean! Sad state of affairs. Time for them to be pulled over and fined in this kind of weather!

When did winter tires become mandatory in PG ??

    Winter tires are mandatory on most roads in BC and as far as PG winter tires are mandatory for Peden hill big yellow sign on top and at the bottom clearly states it there are a couple of other roads within city limits where the tires are mandatory as well

      Only on certain highways are they required, here is the list:
