Police from the James Bay OPP detachment have a driving tip to keep wheels from coming off vehicles. The detachment says make sure your wheel well is free of ice and snow buildup. Keeping buildup off this area minimizes vibrations which are known to loosen lug nuts holding wheels in place. The detachment’s tip comes on the heels of officers dealing with several incidents where wheels came off vehicles because of loose lug nuts. Also if you lose a wheel, you could be charged under the Highway Traffic Act.
