  • If you are driving, drive according to conditions and give yourself extra time to get to your destination
  • Have winter tires on your vehicle
  • Clear snow, ice and frost from all windows, headlights, tail lights and roof
  • Make sure your windshield fluid and vehicle fuel is topped up
  • Carry a roadside emergency kit
  • Let us do the driving by taking YRT

  • Slow down and respect pedestrians crossing the road

Pedestrian Safety

Obey traffic signals when crossing an intersection; make eye contact with drivers before crossing the street

  • Dress to be seen; wear bright, reflective clothing in order to be better visible to drivers
  • Watch out for ice – if you must walk on ice, slow down and take tiny steps
  • Do not wear earphones or text while walking #PledgetoIgnore
