HRM Partners in Policing advise motorists to adjust their driving habits in light of the expected storm.
The weather forecast for tonight includes snow and freezing rain which will make driving treacherous. The roads could become ice covered or full of slush, both resulting in very slippery conditions. Speed and slushy conditions can also lead to hydroplaning.
HRM Partners in Policing are reminding motorists to adjust their driving habits and be mindful of the change of road conditions overnight. In order to safely arrive at your destination, slow down, allow extra time for your commute and ensure you leave extra stopping distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Motorists are also reminded to avoid going down steep roads until they are properly salted. Pedestrians are reminded to make eye contact with drivers and wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop before attempting to cross the road.
