Cpl. Mike Halskov asked drivers to watch DriveBC and drive according to conditions, even if that means driving below the speed limit.

“Conditions can change rapidly on B.C.’s highways at this time of year and we urge all drivers to exercise caution and ensure their vehicles are properly equipped and maintained for winter driving conditions,” Halskov said.
