EDITORIAL: Be prepared
The last gasp of balmy sunny weather was welcomed earlier this week by Tri-Cities residents, especially since fall and winter’s inevitable rain and gloom are en route.
This is also the perfect time of year to start planning how you’re going to remain safe on the roads in the coming dreary, dark months of commuting.
Although we may not get as much snow as our friends in other parts of Canada, what we do get tends to wreak a considerable amount of havoc on the driving public, for a number of reasons. First, most long-term Metro Vancouver residents simply don’t have as much experience driving in the snow. Second, the wet snow we get is more difficult to drive in than the fluffy powder up-country.
But most importantly, many drivers have trouble because they don’t have proper snow tires mounted. Consider this an early warning to take care of that simple safety task.
