I know we all are expert drivers (*wink *wink) but here are a few reminders when driving on the icy roads over the next few days.

  • First, slow down on packed snow and ice. You should reduce your normal speed in half in icy conditions.
  • Second, prepare in advance according to the American Automobile Association, clean windows and headlights.
  • Third, check the tread of your vehicles tires.
  • Lastly, keep your low beam headlights on.

Those are a few tips to help over the next few days. I'm enclosing a few videos to help you visualize some vital safety do's and don'ts on ice and how to navigate the roadways around Central Washington.
