Planning key to safe travels

Current highway conditions, travel advisories and closures are always available on the DriveBC website

Motorists heading out for the holiday season can get all of the information they need for a safe and informed trip by visiting www.driveBC.ca

Current highway conditions, travel advisories and closures are always available on the DriveBC website.

“Preparation and planning can go a long way to avoid the inconvenience and risks associated with winter driving,” said Mary Polak, transportation minister.

“Drivers need to protect their families, passengers and others by being prepared.”

A new Plan Your Route feature has been added that provides DriveBC information along your chosen route and is available for both the desktop and mobile DriveBC websites.

DriveBC also features route-specific weather forecasts, and, with over 250 highway webcams strategically placed around the province, motorists can also see the real-time highway conditions.

DriveBC updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook and motorists can register for text messages and email to receive up-to-date information on their desktop or mobile device.
