The Regina Police Service is reminding all motorists to hold onto their good winter-driving habits for a little while longer. The continuing snowfall and relatively mild temperatures are causing some challenges on Regina roads with reduced visibility and slippery surfaces.
Between midnight at 8:30 this morning, the Regina Police Service has been dispatched to (or advised of) two motor vehicle collisions with injuries, ten motor vehicle collisions with only vehicle or property damage and one hit and run collision (property damage only).
Good winter driving habits include:
– Clearing snow and ice from the vehicle’s windows and lights;
– Reducing speed in order to stop safely;
– Giving yourself more travel time to get to your destination;
– If you can, choosing another day for highway travel, change your plans;
– Leaving a greater distance between your front bumper and the back of the vehicle in front of you;
– Being aware of other drivers and pedestrians on the roadway. Everyone needs more reaction time in this weather;
– Being courteous: we’re all in this together.
Happy 3rd day of Spring! Drive safely!
