With the nasty weather today, the Perth County OPP has a message for you if you’re heading out: go slow in the snow!

Police urge everyone to take it easy out there and remain alert while behind the wheel.

Since the snow started falling in the county this morning, the OPP has already responded to a number of minor collisions.

Poor visibility due to snow and strong winds may result in hazardous driving conditions.

Drive defensively, reduce your speed and adjust your following distance.

If possible, you may want to consider postponing travel until weather conditions improve.
