The Alberta Roadbuilders and Heavy Construction Association reminds people to slow down and pay attention when on the highways.
With snow continuing to fall in the area there is a warning today to slow down and watch for plows on area roads and highways. The Alberta Roadbuilders and Heavy Construction Association says a vehicle rear-ended a plow near Medicine Hat Thursday morning on the Trans Canada Highway. Spokesman Paul Cashman says especially on days like today, people need to slow down and pay attention. Cashman says, "People come up too fast behind the plow. They don't recognize the plow could be going as slow as 30 kilometres per hour to sand and apply salt and to plow the road, or they don't see the plow in the plume of snow thrown off by it." Redcliff RCMP say the incident happened near Walsh and luckily no injuries were reported. S/Sgt Sean Maxwell advises people not to travel today unless it's absolutely necessary. ~~ Warren Affleck
