OPP Offer Driving Tips in Snowy Weather

Oxford OPP are offering some driving tips on a day when snowsqualls are making life difficult for motorists. First and foremost, if you see snow, go slow. Police say make sure you look far ahead so you can recognize hazards in advance and have more time to respond. If you don't have to drive, and conditions are bad, don't drive. Wait until conditions improve, or if you do have to go, be sure to allow yourself extra time so you're not rushing and taking risks. And make sure you have a winter survival kit in your car, or trunk. This includes extra clothing, winter boots, blankets, water and snack foods. Having a candle and waterproof matches can help heat the interior of your vehicle if it stalls or you become stranded. It looks like treacherous road conditions will continue throughout the day, as a large band of lake effect snow is set up, blowing a significant amount of snow between Putnam and Woodstock. Conditions will be even worse travelling north into Perth and Huron Counties.
