The mixture of snow and temperatures hovering around the freezing mark are causing deteriorating driving conditions on Saskatchewan roadways today.

RCMP are reporting a few vehicles have slid off the TransCanada Highway between Pense and Caronport on Monday morning because of the slippery travel conditions. None of the incidents have been described a serious.

White Butte and Moose Jaw RCMP would like to warn motorists to use caution when driving on highways in and around the Regina / Moose Jaw areas. They advise with the warmer temperatures, the roads are getting more slippery as the day goes on.

"The highways have the appearance of being clear and dry but this is not the case in many areas," an RCMP advisory notes. "Members responding to accidents have noticed how slippery the roads are not only while driving, but also when walking outside their vehicles."

The Saskatchewan Ministry of Highways and Infrastructure's Highway Hotline website is listing nearly all Saskatchewan roads under the winter conditions category, with icy or slippery sections, and the wet road surfaces are subject to freezing.
