Canada is known for its winters and even though Greater Vancouver and the Lower Mainland generally have mild weather compared to other cities in the Great White North, there still comes a higher risk of accidents due to quick changes in weather conditions. The wet snow, icy roads, and salt take a toll on your vehicles so it’s no surprise that at Colorwoks Tom's Custom Auto Body, it’s one of our busiest seasons.
Here are some things to be mindful of when you’re on the road this Vancouver winter.
As we head into the winter season, the question drivers face is: Are winter tires really worth the investment and hassle? 78% of Canadians believe winter tires make a difference, however only 53 percent actually use them. Why is this the case? Winter road conditions can be treacherous across British Columbia. The Provincial highways often have high mountain passes which can be dangerous at the best of times, without a layer of ice and snow.
Getting into a car accident is always difficult and, unfortunately, a rear-end collisions can be even more punishing. With a lot of rear-end collisions, your vehicle will have some form of serious damage – even if you can’t see it. You should always get your vehicle inspected by a reputable auto body collision centre like Colorworks Tom’s Custom Auto Body Port Coquitlam when in a collision, even if you don’t think you have any damage.
