VERNON - Drivers are being reminded to leave a little early as they return to work this week.
Vernon Fire and Rescue Services responded to five car crashes over the past three days, fire captain Colin Clarke says.
“We are expecting more today,” he says.
Clarke says there were fortunately no serious injuries in the crashes.
“The accidents we’re getting… the roads are not that bad, it’s people that seem to be in a rush,” Clarke says. “You have to leave ten minutes early.”
Snow plows were kept busy over the past few days and more snowfall is expected throughout the week.
“Just plan ahead, give yourself extra time, and take it easy on the roads,” Clarke says.
