Snow is coming down across Vancouver Island as Environment Canada predicted.

On Vancouver Island that means wet, slippery snow that makes for dangerous driving conditions. 

BC Transit routes are delayed and the special weather statement provided by Environment Canada says that snow can be expected through the week.

Collisions are bound to happen in weather like this and that affects everyone’s commutes as they traverse the snow covered highways and city streets. 

Highway 1, Highway 17 and Sooke Road (Highway 14) can be especially dangerous.

If you’re concerned of the road conditions before heading out, here are the latest images from DriveBC on the highways with a high frequency of commuters—these images will update every 15 minutes:
