Shift into winter driving mode and prepare for the upcoming season. Don’t wait until snow arrives.  Whether you’re driving across town, or across the province, it’s important that you and your vehicle are prepared for winter conditions.

A few simple steps to winterize your ride could make a difference to your safety:

  • Soon it will be time to Shift Out of Winter. Get battery, belts/hoses, cooling/heating and electrical/exhaust systems checked by pros.
  • Before each trip, do a ‘circle check’ (walk around your vehicle to inspect its condition and possible reversing hazards).
  • Review your vehicle’s maintenance record. Take it in for repair if needed and report any concerns to your supervisor.
  • Winter Wind Down. Now is the time to prepare for next year – budget new winter tires, re-stock your emergency kit.
