Default Saskatchewan drivers tense behind the wheel

When it comes to navigating snowy and icy highways in sub-zero temperatures, Saskatchewan and Manitoba drivers are the most likely to be white-knuckled behind the wheel.

That was among the findings of an online winter driving survey of 2,008 Canadian adults done by TD Insurance between Oct. 28 and Nov. 1.

The poll found that 41 per cent of Saskatchewan and Manitoba residents feel anxious, scared or even panicked when it comes to winter driving, compared to 25 per cent nationally.

What's driving the anxiety? In an interview on Monday, Henry Blumenthal, vice-president and chief underwriter for TD Insurance, speculated that drivers in Saskatchewan and Manitoba are tense because those provinces generally see greater snowfall and colder temperatures than other areas of the country.

"It depends on the severity of our winters, but the good news is that people in Saskatchewan and Manitoba are among the most prepared for winter driving," he said.

TD Insurance will more than likely adjust rates for those living in those regions.

Nope, Saskatchewan has Government auto insurance. They have some of the cheapest rates in Canada.
