Preparing for winter in Pontiac

Unlike the summer driving season – with the warm weather and long cruises looming – winter isn’t exactly a time of year many drivers look forward to.
But, it’s one of the most important times of year for us Canadians to prepare for when it comes to driving our vehicles.
With that in mind, Mark Trudeau from Trudeau Collision has a few tips for drivers before the snow hits the ground.
First thing’s first: snow tires. They’re mandatory in Quebec so that means you have to have them on by Dec. 15. Not only that, but Trudeau says that it’s important for drivers to check the quality of the tires before installing them.
Trudeau said many people take their time in the spring before removing their snow tires. After all, we live in Canada and the chance of a May snowfall isn’t that farfetched.
