As inclement weather approaches Texas, please help TxDOT in reminding drivers to stay off icy/snow-filled roads.
Also, we expect that black ice - ice that's difficult to see - will be a big problem on bridges, overpasses and shaded areas.
Again, the best advice is to stay at home and off the roadways. But if motorists absolutely need to drive, please keep these safe driving tips in mind:
- Buckle up
- Slow down
- Put phone down
- Plan extra time for travel
- Keep extra distance between cars
- Watch for maintenance crews
