The Nova Scotia RCMP is responding to calls from stranded motorists who are getting stuck due to slippery road/white out conditions. The RCMP is asking motorists to stay home if possible and delay travel plans until conditions improve.
If you have to travel tonight, please dress warmly and bring along an emergency kit in your vehicle in the event something unexpected happens. Please ensure your cell is charged in case you have to call 911.
As well, reduce your speed, allow for extra travel time and avoid sudden starts, stops and lane changes or turns during icy conditions, which may cause you to be involved in a collision.
Before heading out, listen to local weather reports, call 511 or check the Nova Scotia Department of Transportation and Infrastructure Renewal highway cameras at www.gov.ns.ca/tran/cameras for an update on conditions.
