This week, we are going to look at driving tips that can keep you safe as we move towards winter weather. The calendar may say that it is still autumn, but with an average first snowfall on October 18th, Northern Colorado can expect wintery weather long before the official start of winter on December 21st.
The stretch of I-25 from Longmont to Wellington claims too many lives every year. It is important to wear your seatbelt, watch your speed, and slow down in inclement weather. Every few weeks we read about the latest horrific crash on I-25. Don’t become a statistic: slow down and take all necessary precautions.
On The Plains
Wind and snow can quickly combine to create very dangerous driving conditions, even white-out conditions. If you find yourself in a white-out, slow down, make sure your headlights are on, but don’t use your brights, and stay alert. If you feel you need to get off the highway, be sure to turn off into a parking area, do not just pull over, since you could get rear-ended by the car behind you who may think you are still driving.
