Travellers need to head out prepared.
“The big thing is just to keep alert and keep it safe,” said Michael Brenholen, director of operations with St. John Ambulance. “Dress appropriately for the weather outside, not the climate inside.”
When travelling on snowy roads and in winter conditions, certain hazards might arise. Just in case, it’s good to include a shovel, blankets, booster cables and a first aid kit in the car. Keep them within easy reach.
