OPP remind motorists to respond to adverse and rapidly-changing road conditions by reducing speed and leaving extra space to adjust to reduced braking ability on icy, snowy roads.
Weather changes, particularly during the winter, can occur suddenly and dramatically. Sudden storms and plunging temperatures can drastically change road conditions and reduce visibility. Driving defensively and responsibly during the winter months will ensure you and your loved ones will reach your destination safely.
Finally, please DO NOT call the Provincial Communications Centre (PCC) (Dispatch) for road and weather conditions. Police will not provide this information. Calling the PCC ties up phone lines that others depend upon for emergency situations.
