With a mix of snow and rain freezing on Alberta roads, police are reminding drivers to give each other extra space.
Tailgating has caused numerous collisions in the Fort over the past few weeks.
"If the roads are slippery it's going to take more time and distance to stop. We often see that people don't leave themselves enough distance between vehicles," said Janice Schoepp, Constable with the Fort Saskatchewan RCMP.
For highway driving, it is recommended to use a five second following rule rather than three.
"I think it's common sense to check what the road conditions are before you head out and even ahead of time so you know if you need to leave yourself a little extra time."
