Be aware of winter road conditions — RCMP

Winter wonderlands may be all very well on postcards, but it's a different story out on the roads

It’s a winter wonderland out on the highways and byways of the Central Island, and motorists would do well to keep that in mind.

That was the message put out this week by Central Island Traffic Services Constable Blake Manchur in relation to this week’s first winter storm of the season. Although Manchur said police responded to several fender benders during and after the storm, he said there were no major incidents. However, he said drivers need to be aware that winter and summer driving are different. “We are seeing drivers following too close, but the main thing is people driving too fast for road conditions,” he said. “Just because a sign says the maximum speed, that doesn’t mean you can necessarily drive that speed if the road conditions are poor.”
