Spring Thaw: Avoiding Accidents


Your windshield wipers worked hard to remove the snow during winter, but you will still need them to remove soft snow and rain during spring. If the blades are frayed or the washer fluid depleted, they will have to be replaced.

All-season tires work well on both dry and wet roads, but not on snow. Take the usual precautions on wet roads.


For example, keep a following distance of at least five seconds and break and turn slowly.

Remember, BC winters can be long in some areas and roads can still freeze in shady areas, so take care when driving under bridges and through mountain passes.

Water pools in the outside lanes, so stay in the middle lanes where possible. It is also easier to drive in the tracks of the vehicle in front of you than to drive through large puddles.
