Langley RCMP said residents should avoid the roads until driving conditions improve.

“If people have the option to stay home, they should stay home,” said Cpl. Holly Largy.

Driver should make sure they have proper tires and clean off accumulated snow before hitting the road, Largy said.

A vehicle with obstructed vision due to snow can result in a ticket, Largy warned.
