Winter weather is still here in Northeast Wyoming which can cause highway surfaces to be slick and unpredictable.
WYDOT is especially cautioning motorists today as area roads are very slick and they are creating dangerous driving conditions.
WYDOT reminds motorists if you are driving in areas that have ice or snow on the road, adjust your driving to fit conditions and remember these winter driving tips:
During and after snowstorms, Wyoming Department of Transportation crews will be plowing snow, sanding slick areas and attempting to keep Wyoming highways open to the traveling public.
“WYDOT is asking motorists to be watchful for our snowplows and slow down when they see the flashing lights,” said Ronda Holwell, Public Involvement Specialist for District 4, remember “plows are clearing the road to make it safer for, you, the traveling public”.
Holwell urges drivers to “slow down, slow down, slow down!” Also, “Motorist need to have patience and stay with the flow of traffic, even if traffic is only going 40 mph, this will make it safer for WYDOT plows and the traveling public” said Holwell.
