As we reach the end of November, Nova Scotians are advised to get ready for winter driving.

Public Works Minister Kim Masland says the weather can change quickly causing deteriorating road conditions. Drivers are reminded to maintain a safe distance from snowplows, keep gas tanks at least half full, plan for possible delays, and leave additional space between vehicles since it takes more time and distance to stop in adverse conditions.

People should book a service appointment for their vehicles and ensure they have snow tires, antifreeze, and an emergency kit. RCMP staff sergeant Ben Parry advises people to clear their vehicles from any debris and to drive according to the road conditions.

The province will continue to keep people informed about winter driving safety with the Be Winter Ready campaign that will broadcast messages on safe driving tips.
