Most of the roads around southern Alberta are in pretty good winter driving condition.

High River RCMP Constable Jill Kingdon-Mills says before you head out, make sure you can see where you're going.

"We're all in a hurry but there are a couple of options," she says. "Get your scraper out, build those muscles in your arms, scrape off that frost or start your vehicle and let your heater do it."

In a pinch you can use windshield washer fluid and your heater.

Just recently she saw a car, in a school zone, with only a very small circle that was clear to peer through.

She says the best winter driving advice is to just slow down.

"Winter driving is trickier, but winter driving can be done successfully and mostly safely, is you just decrease your speed, and you have to give yourself time to stop, you cannot stop as quickly on winter driving conditions as you can in summer."
