Adjust your driving speed for winter conditions.

Speed limits are in place to reduce risk and are determined by a number of factors. When speed limits are set, they assume optimal driving conditions and good roads.

However, this is Manitoba. When winter hits, our driving conditions can look a little something like this:

No one is around to adjust speed limit signs as the snow falls and roads get icy. When driving on icy roads and in snowy conditions, going the speed limit is too fast.

Driving over the speed limit or going too fast for conditions is one of the most reported factors associated with fatal crashes on Manitoba roads.

Adjust your driving to winter conditions. Slow down.
