RCMP warn motorists to take it easy

No one was injured when a car left Hwy 217 in Seabrook just after 9:30 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 20.

Road conditions at the time were slushy and slippery.

In other parts of the province like Cumberland County, the first significant snowfall of the season made for a busy day for RCMP.

On Wednesday, Dec. 19 Cumberland RCMP responded to six reportable motor vehicle collisions. All collisions resulted in property damage only.

RCMP were also notified of eight additional instances where vehicles slid off the roadway. These incidents required assistance but there were no reported injuries.

The RCMP want to remind motorists to drive according to weather conditions. Winter travel calls for extra care even under normal seasonal conditions.

Slowing down is the best precautionary measure against any misfortune while driving on slippery roads. Be sure to allow for sufficient stopping distance between vehicles.

Be patient, and allow for additional travel time.

Motorists are also reminded to keep their vehicles in top working order. That includes having a good set of tires.

Winter tires are an excellent investment. Motorists are encouraged to keep in their vehicle a winter survival kit, which should include such items as a shovel, booster cables, flashlight, food, water and blanket.
