driver safety tips

Sheriff deputies, in coordination with the State Highway Patrol, recommend that drivers follow these safety recommendations.

• Don’t drive distracted

• Stay alert for snowplows which turn or exit frequently. These units may, at times, travel over center lines in order to improve road conditions.

• Stay back at least 10 car lengths behind the plow.

• Slow down to a safe speed when winter conditions call for slower speeds.
