Vehicle Maintenance & Safety in Alberta

It’s common for winter in Alberta to last for half of the year — yes, that long. This introduces a unique set of driving challenges for motorists — such as icy roads, block heaters that need plugging in, and gravel on the streets. The resources on this page can help you become a safer and more confident driver in Alberta.
