Take it easy

While most people in Williams Lake only saw heavy rainfall over the weekend, others in the Cariboo experienced some sticky, wet, heavy snow.

While most people in Williams Lake only saw heavy rainfall over the weekend, others in the Cariboo experienced some sticky, wet, heavy snow.

Great for making snowmen and igloos.

Not so great for driving.

We Cariboo folk are no strangers to the wrath of winter driving, yet some forget to take it easy on the roads.

If you are worried about being late for work, leave a little early — and remember it’s better late than never.

And with December fast approaching, Christmas parties will be held throughout the city. If you are drinking, please don’t drive. Take a cab or a bus, walk, call a friend, or call Operation Red Nose, whose volunteers will be happy to take you and your car home on selected dates.

Christmas shopping and festivities can also cause drivers to become distracted, so stay alert and, again, don’t rush on Cariboo roads.
