Falkland has taken a starring role in keeping motorists safe.

A new web camera near Falkland is now live on the province’s DriveBC website, providing real-time coverage of highway conditions in the area and helping motorists plan a safe journey.

The web camera is located on Highway 97 at Silvernails Road near Falkland, looking southeast:http://prd.images.drivebc.ca/bchighwaycam/pub/html/www/230.html

“Winter weather is coming to rural roads and highways across the province,” said Shuswap MLA George Abbott. “DriveBC webcams help people plan ahead and prepare, which in turn helps ensure a safer trip.”

So motorists can “Know Before You Go” the province is adding 30 new web cameras to its DriveBC network this year. Priority for new web cameras is given to routes prone to extreme weather or traffic congestion, and for sites where there is not already a nearby webcam.
