Winter weather leads to collision investigations for police

The Guelph Police investigated twenty collisions yesterday as our city roads became slick with snow. Please remember to slow down. Everything takes longer on a slippery surface.

It takes longer to start from a standstill, longer to stop, longer to change lanes. Even vehicles with all-wheel drive, which have superior traction when starting, will have trouble when stopping.

So take it easy and remember, no technology can replace attentive and safe drive habits.
