Island RCMP are advising motorists that all island roads are very treacherous with the freezing rain that has been coming down. Roads are being described as a sheet of ice, and the RCMP are asking drivers to stay off all Island roads until further notice.
There have been multi-vehicle pile-ups in a few locations in East Prince, including the Middleton area, a vehicle roll-over at Read's Corner in Summerside and accidents on Pope Road in Summerside.
RCMP are asking the traveling public to adjust their driving habits to the current road conditions.
Drivers are asked to reduce speeds, leave sufficient space between their vehicle and those around them and if you have to get out of your vehicle, to put on your emergency lights and park off the road as much as possible.
