In an effort to mitigate some of the dangers on the roads this winter season, the Kentucky State Police have released several tips for motorists that will help ensure the safety of everyone on the road. A few of their recommendation include:
- Completely cleaning windows and mirrors so as to ensure that visibility will not be restricted inside the vehicle.
- Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going so you can account for unexpected situations along the way, such as snow pileups, traffic due to wrecks, and icy road conditions.
- Never speed. It’s more important to get where you’re going than it is to get there on time.
- Do not use cruise control as this feature may force your wheels to continue spinning on slick surfaces.
