Winter driving conditions have officially arrived in Grande Prairie.
RCMP say they have received 36 reports of collisions between Monday and Wednesday morning.
Corporal Roy Kennedy says they want to remind motorists to adjust their driving habits accordingly.
“We’re getting to that point now where we’re reminding people to get their winter tires on, and that just because the speed limit says 50 km/h or 80 km/h, that doesn’t mean that is the speed you should be travelling. You have to travel to the conditions of the roadway. You should also make sure your vehicle is in good working order heading into the winter season.”
Kennedy also says making the roads safer this time of year is everyone’s responsibility.
“We can all play a big part in reducing the amount of collisions in the city. It just takes some mindfulness and being attentive to the conditions that we’re driving in.”
Grande Prairie saw more than 2 cm of snow fall overnight, but the forecast is relatively clear for the rest of the week.
