Month of Myths – #9

Myth 9: I do not drive under “severe” conditions.

Most Canadians drive under “severe” conditions, but believe they drive under “normal” conditions. Severe conditions include:

  • Cold weather.
  • Extensive idling or stop-and-go driving.
  • Driving less than 8 kilometers per trip, or in freezing temperatures driving less than 16 km per trip.
  • Driving in extremely hot (over 320 C) conditions.
  • Trailer towing, driving with a roof rack, or driving in mountainous conditions.
  • Driving on muddy, dusty, or de-iced roads.
