Default Older Canadians fare better than younger drivers on winter roads

Canadians aged 55 or over are not only more confident winter drivers (27% versus 17% of Canadians aged 18-34), they are also more knowledgeable on how to stay safe on the roads, according to the TD Insurance Winter Driving Poll.

"With age comes wisdom, so it's no surprise older Canadians fare better on winter roads," TD notes.

According to the poll of 2,008 randomly selected Canadian adults, more 55+ drivers knew that:

If your vehicle breaks down you should run the motor for shorter periods of time instead of leaving it running if stranded (87% versus 66% of younger Canadians).
  • Keeping your gas tank at least half-full will add weight and traction to your vehicle (69% versus 49% of younger Canadians).
  • If your vehicle skids out of control on a slippery surface, you should steer in the same direction of the skid (57% versus 45% of younger Canadians).
  • Using cruise control in winter can be dangerous (70% versus 64% of younger Canadians).
