Transportation Safety Tips Details

Slow Down and Keep a Safe Distance

If the road is wet or slippery it does not provide the grip your tires need; you have to drive slower than you would on a dry road. Reduce your speed from posted limits. Following are some guidelines:

  • Wet road - Slow down 5 to 10 m.p.h
  • Packed snow - Slow down to half speed
  • Ice - Slow to a crawl

Unsafe speed on slippery roads can lead to dangerous Run Off Road and Head On crashes.
