Ottawa, Ontario – With winter now in full force upon most parts of the country, the Canadian Automobile Association (CAA) is reminding motorists that winter tires are designed for use in snow, and are strongly recommended during the winter months. CAA encourages motorists to prevent problems before they occur, by engaging in safe winter driving practices, using winter tires, and packing an emergency winter kit.

With Quebec’s winter tire legislation now in effect, CAA said it will be following the Quebec situation closely, and is encouraging other provinces to closely monitor the effect it will have on motorists’ safety to determine if the legislation saves lives and reduces collisions.
