We are getting lots of reports about black ice spots on area highways, especially north of us on the QE2, near Carstairs. 

It's recommended that drivers turn on their lights and maintain a safe following distance, leaving lots of room between vehicles, making sure they are completely brushed off and that you are giving yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. 

Watch out for Icy patches, especially on bridge decks, overpasses, intersections and exit ramps. 

If you are having trouble seeing the road due to falling snow, here are a couple of tips for remaining safe. Use the white line painted on the right side of the road as a guide, have your window defrost on, and set wipers to a low setting to keep the windshield clear.
