State Patrol Sergeant Jesse Grabow says one question drivers should always ask themselves during the winter…

“If that vehicle in front of you that you’re following spins out, loses control, whatever happens and they create a hazard, are you gonna be able to react accordingly and avoid it safely?”

Grabow says the key to safe winter driving…

“It just comes down to slowing down, increase your following distance, keep the seatbelt on, and just always, always, always pay attention.”

Grabow says allow more time for your trip — and a little patience will go a long way.
