In winter weather, roads can be icy, and this can quickly become stressful and even dangerous. Certain information is essential to avoid any incident. Here are a few tips to help you apprehend your trip with peace of mind.

Before you leave

Find out about traffic conditions and weather forecasts
Check your vehicle and its equipment
Test fitting snow chains or special equipment
Pack blankets, water and food

On the road

Adapt your speed and increase your safety distances
Don’t brake suddenly, but use your engine brake instead
Don’t overtake snow removal and salting machines and make it easier for them to pass

It is very important to respect the signage related to winter equipment.
