Posted by Kyle Brookings on Saturday, November 10, 2018

The Royal Newfoundland Constabulary on the Avalon Peninsula are warning of "treacherous" road conditions this afternoon.

There have been multiple accidents as many cars do not have winter tires.

Police say that many motorists do not have snow tires and are struggling.

If you’re vehicle isn’t winter ready, please stay out of traffic.

Winter Driving Tips:
  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly,
  • Drive slowly,
  • The normal dry pavement following distance of three to four seconds should be increased to eight to ten seconds,
  • Test your brakes,
  • Don't stop if you can avoid it,
  • Don't power up hills,
  • Don't stop going up a hill, and
  • Stay home.
