Winter Driving Conditions Change Quickly. Remember to:

  • Avoid passing a snowplow in operation. It is extremely dangerous to pass either between or around snowplows, because of reduced visibility caused by whiteout conditions, and the ridge of snow that can be created between plows.
  • Keep a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you in case you have to brake suddenly on a slippery road.
  • Be careful when approaching shaded areas, bridges, and overpasses, as these sections of road freeze much sooner in cold weather and may be slippery, causing you to suddenly lose traction.
  • Large trucks and buses can spray moisture or blow snow onto your windshield, leading to a sudden loss of visibility. Always drive defensively, and leave enough space to avoid snow spray.
