Tips for Driving in Winter Weather

  • Check road conditions before getting out on the roads.
  • Stay at least 200 feet behind road-clearing equipment; crews need room to maneuver and can engage plowing or spreading materials without notice.
  • Allow extra space between vehicles, so there is adequate distance for braking in wet and icy conditions.
  • Be aware of "black ice," which looks wet on the roadway, but is actually a thin layer of ice.
  • Please be patient, plan trips ahead and allow extra time to reach destinations
