Every autumn, British Columbia highway conditions start to experience a chilling transition, which usually lasts until at least February. To combat the higher risks of driving through snow, ice, and sub-zero temperatures, we encourage travellers to make the Shift into Winter. It’s a shift in the way we prepare our vehicles and behave on the roads. It’s also a shift in the way the ministry manages highway maintenance, from snow plowing to avalanche control.
Shift into Winter is a joint provincial initiative supported by the Winter Driving Safety Alliance, which is made up of organizations committed to improving the safety of drivers during the winter months.
Make the shift with these winter driving tips.
