Nothing political today, nothing controversial even. Just a reminder. But an important one we need to remember this time of year. Our first little snow of the season reminds us of the need to drive safely during our Wisconsin winters. Every year it seems when we get our first big snow, or even a little ice, we forget how to drive in the conditions. The Wisconsin DOT is offering some reminders worth mentioning. For example, before even leaving in bad weather, make sure your vehicle is in winter driving condition, with plenty of tread and working wipers. You can plan ahead by visiting 511.wi.gov for the most accurate travel information. It provides conditions of more than 14,000 miles of Wisconsin roads and is updated twice hourly 24 hours a day. You can also check out new traffic cameras to see what you are about to drive into. The DOT reminds us to move over when passing an accident scene, and if we get in an accident, they recommend moving your car to the side of the road, but only if you are not injured and if it is still drivable. And, of course, buckle up and put your phone down, especially in bad weather. That way, hopefully, we can all get where we’re going safely.
