The new year has brought frost quakes and a polar vortex of bone chilling cold to Toronto. Winter driving has become dicey with black ice and high winds making the roads treacherous to drive. With winter firmly here, Young Drivers of Canada has launched their January Winter Driving Contest "My Funniest or Worst Winter Driving Story.”
Entrants are invited to share their funniest or worst winter driving experience. People can enter the contest via the winter driving contest page. They may now also submit their written posts, videos and photos via Facebook,Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #ydwinterdriving.
There is an opportunity to win one of twelve Winter Driving Packages that include an online tutorial and in-car driving lessons. This prize package normally retails at $399. Drivers can now face this Canadian winter head on and learn skid prevention and control, how to drive in snow, what to do if you hit black ice and more.
“This winter season is a fantastic time to go out with an experienced driving instructor and receive step by step one-on-one driving instruction. After two years of mild winters, Canadians need to brush up on their winter driving and beat their winter driving fears. We need to get to work and school and go about our lives, polar vortex or not. We can’t change the road conditions, but we can learn how to drive safely,” Young Drivers GTA Manager Angelo DiCicco explains.
The twelve winter driving packages offered through this contest will give Torontonians invaluable skills they can use for years to come. The in-car driving lessons will be delivered within the Greater Toronto Area on February 2nd, 2014.
To help every person that enters receive some winter driver training, each entrant will get access to an online winter driving tutorial. This online tutorial includes videos and defensive driving tips to best deal with winter’s challenges.
The Winter Driving Contest "My Funniest or Worst Winter Driving Story” closes on January 29th, 2014.
