Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison warns drivers to slow down and watch road conditions.
“This is usually the worst time of the year for accidents on the highway because of the transition from generally dry and clear highways to snow and ice and slush,” he said. “It’s this transition period in the first month that we start getting ugly conditions on the road that we see the most accidents.” After around a month of these wet conditions, drivers adjust to the changes and there are fewer accidents, he added. “No matter what the posted speed limit, if it’s really bad, driver under the speed limit,” he said.
“If you are going under the posted speed limit and traffic builds up, be courteous to pull over and allow traffic to go through.”
