National Safe Driving Week

Did you know Canada.. National Safe Driving week starts today, December 1st, and runs until the 7th.

It's actually the 56th National Safe Driving Week!!

Canada Safety Council encourages all Canadian drivers to take added precautions on the road throughout the winter months. Being prepared is the best way to ensure for safe winter driving.

As part of National Safe Driving Week, Young Drivers of Canada is releasing a 24 Hour Challenge Video Series. Young Drivers of Canada Instructor Rachel Hesson-Bolton was stuck in her vehicle on a cold winter’s night. This is the scenario we all hope we will never get into. When you’re freezing cold and it’s dark, that’s not the time you want to be reading instructions. The 24 Hour Challenge Video Series shows Rachel testing the items in her kit with mixed results. Great you have water in your kit, but it’s -16°C and your water is frozen. How should you pack your water? Should you leave the mitts out of your kit and just depend on hand warmers? We’ll cover that. What is the #1 tool Rachel found you must have in your emergency kit?

When the 24 hours is all said and done, Rachel gives us 15 episodes on the real goods of what should go in the emergency kit and why. And it will all fit in your vehicle. Promise.

Young Drivers of Canada talks about the importance of being prepared for winter driving. Now we put our emergency kit to the ultimate test and we want to share our results with you.


Are you prepared for winter driving??

  1. I'm pretty sure everyone in Calgary has forgotten how to drive over the summer. It's crazy! Having a kit for emergencies is a necessity.
