Lt. Patchin was busy this morning assisting with motor vehicle accidents due to very slippery back roads. Just a reminder, please use caution when driving on winter roads. Slow down and allow extra time for braking, approach intersections with caution and always account for some extra time and make sure you leave early for work, school, appointments, etc. so that you can drive the appropriate speed for the conditions.
Fortunately there were no major injuries from accidents this morning but this is a good time to remind people “winter is here” and drivers need to be cautious!
This is also a great time to make sure your vehicle is winter ready by making sure your tires are not thread worn, brakes are in good working order, your lights are all working and your fluids are full, especially windshield washer fluid.
