A warning to drivers from ICBC
ICBC is reminding drivers that speed limits are for ideal conditions only. Vancouver has welcomed its first snow fall since February 2014, with much more is likely to follow. An ICBC spokesperson reminds drivers to adjust their driving to accommodate the likely upcoming snowy conditions forecasted.
“Well as we are in the first major snow fall in the lower mainland for quite some time a good reminder is that posted speed limits are for the ideal conditions only. So we are not in sunshine and bright conditions we are in we slushy conditions so we want drivers to adjust their driving to the winter conditions, allowing yourself plenty of time to get to where you need to go. And when you’re driving slow down, and allow yourself at least twice the normal breaking distance on these snow covered and slushy roads.”
