Moose Jaw and White Butte RCMP are warning motorists to use caution when driving on highways in and around the Moose Jaw and Regina areas.
As a result of warmer temperatures, highways are becoming more slippery as the day goes along.
Although highways may appear to be clear and dry, RCMP said this is not the case in many areas. Members have noticed the slick conditions not only while driving, but also while walking outside their vehicles.
According to the RCMP, there have been a few minor incidents where motorists have gone off the highway, but nothing serious at this time.
Most of the incidents occurred on the Trans-Canada Highway between Pense and Caronport.
