Don’t fall off iced up Canadian roads

Driving on iced roads

  1. Accelerate and decelerate your vehicle slowly – Take your time with how you operate your car. On an ice road this could be the difference between life and death.
  2. Drive slowly– Measure rather it is better to arrive to work late or not at all!
  3. Know your brakes– How long is it going to take for your breaks to come to a complete stop?
  4. Don’t stop if you can avoid it – With the exceptions of stop lights and stop signs of course.
  5. Don’t power up hills– The road is iced meaning if you power you could slide right back down and risk drivers’ lives near you.
  6. Don’t stop going up a hill– If you are part way up, there is no room to turn back up an iced hill roadway.
  7. Stay home– Sometimes staying home is better than risking the ride.
