With winter approaching, our local OPP wants to remind drivers to get their vehicles ready for snow.

The Haliburton Highlands OPP says they see a lot of collisions every winter because people haven’t winterized their vehicles. They say to install four winter-rates tires now before the next snowfall.

Officials say to have an ice scrapper, or snow brush to keep your windows, signals and lights clear. They say to also drive slow, because speeding is the number one cause of winter collisions.

Plan your trip, and check your local weather before heading out.
