Ottawa Personal Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth and Associates. Wow, the weather we are having this winter in Ottawa is unbelievable. Environment Canada has indicated that Ottawa needs to brace itself for freezing rain coming our way. The freezing rain is supposed to start later this afternoon,which will make Ottawa roads dangerous and slippery. If you can avoid going out this afternoon and tonight, please do ! On a better note, temperatures are supposed to rise overnight and Ottawa is expected to wake to temperatures hovering around 1o degrees celsius.
Please avoid accidents by:
-Giving yourself extra time to arrive at your destination.
-Allowing adequate distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
-Ensuring you have adequate windshield wiper fluid
-Checking your snow tires
-Staying in if possible
-Making sure your windows and lights are clear
