If you're heading out onto the highways this holiday season, you might want to take some advice from a pro.

Edgar Murdoch began driving truck before many of us were born; He's held a commercial drivers license for 61 years.

He writes a column for Pro-Trucker Magazine and loves to share his stories and opinions about driving on our highways.

The CBC's Leah Shaw met with Edgar to discover what he's learned about driving on ice and snow.
