Local RCMP are urging holiday travelers to use caution on the roads after this week’s major snowfall.
Mounties in Cranbrook have been called to over 14 crashes since Tuesday.
Constable Katie Forgeron says luckily no one was hurt but some of incidents were major and could have had a much different outcome.
Forgeron asserts police want drivers to remember conditions can change very quickly in the East Kootenay so they want anyone behind the wheel to give themselves more time than normally to get to your destination.
She adds police believe the regional highways contractor is doing the best job they can to maintain the roads considering this week’s storm but admits its hard to keep up with all the snow that came down Tuesday night into Wednesday.
