Malahat weather issues affect drivers

The Malahat has been a real challenge for drivers Sunday with snow, slush, and black ice.

Some cars couldn't make it up hills, backing up traffic behind them.  Other cars spun out in the extremely slick conditions.

Drivers are advised not to go out without the right tires,this is those rated for mountains and snow.

Despite all that, we didn't hear about any major accidents.

However there was a 2-vehicle head-on incident at West Saanich Rd. at Bradley Dyne Rd earlier this evening. North Saanich Fire Department says there were no injuries -- and advise if you must drive in these conditions, do it with caution.
