Superior East OPP Warn Winter Driving Isn't Over Yet

Local police are reminding winter driving hasn't ended yet.

Following a fresh dump of snow, Superior East Ontario Provincial Police are reminding drivers to keep a close eye on road conditions and drive accordingly - that includes giving yourself more time to reach your destination, reducing your speed, and increasing your following distance to ensure there's enough room and time to stop safely.

Police emphasize speed too fast for conditions is the most common cause of winter collisions.

Drivers are also reminded to accelerate slowly and brake sooner to avoid spinouts, especially at intersections.
