Police Advise Motorists to Adjust Driving for the Weather

 
Police advise motorists to adjust their driving habits in light of the start of today’s snowfall. Motorists are advised to adjust their driving habits and be mindful of the change of road conditions (throughout the day and overnight). A vehicle’s stopping distance increases when it’s slippery so allow extra space between your vehicle and the one ahead of you. When approaching a red light or stop sign, begin stopping earlier to help prevent sliding into the intersection.
 
Visibility may also be an issue. Motorists are asked to watch for pedestrians and other vehicles. Pedestrians are reminded to make eye contact with drivers and wait until the vehicle comes to a complete stop before attempting to cross the road. We thank motorists and pedestrians for doing their part to help keep our roads safe.
