Safe Winter Driving Tips
Posted on 11/15/2018

Everyone has to do their part to get around safely in the winter. When a winter storm is expected, all municipalities have a plan:

• First, hills and bridges are treated in advance of a storm to make them easier to plow.
• As soon as snow begins, salt trucks head out and treat expressways and main roads first, followed by smaller routes.
• Plowing begins in a similar order. With large snowfalls, plowing usually begins once the storm has ended.

Drivers need to have their own plan, which includes leaving earlier and planning a route. It is important to delay unnecessary travel during significant storms to give plows time to do their jobs. It’s also safer for drivers. Here are some more tips for safe winter driving.
