A little snow can really cause problems for drivers, especially the first snow of the season.
Something the La Crosse County Sheriff’s Department said became very apparent last Friday — the first substantial snow of the season.
The department said dispatch fielded 81 9-1-1 calls over a five hour period Friday and 100 weather-related calls overall.
That’s more than a typical 24-hour period for November.
One of the top tips to avoid becoming a traffic statistic, according to the sheriff: Clean your windshield.
“Safe driving,” says the department in an online post, “starts with being able to see where you are going.”
