You’d think people would remember from year to year, but when the snow comes, some of us need a refresher on how to drive in it. “It’s always that first initial snow you get. Sometime motorists are just not prepared for it. They think, well, I have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, I should be fine, and a lot of times they’re exceeding the speed when they shouldn’t be,” says State Police Lt. David Byrd.

Advice from the State Police and IDOT: Make sure you have decent tread on your tires and that the tires are properly inflated, install new wiper blades and make sure the windshield solvent reservoir is full, and when it comes to driving in snow and ice, be particularly careful at intersections, exit ramps, curves, bridges and shady areas. They might have ice that other areas of the road don’t.
