“The fewer motorists we have on the roads will equate to less traffic related incidents,” said Sheriff Fuson. “This will lessen the demand on deputies allowing them to respond to more serious issues that winter weather brings.”

Deputies will be out tomorrow to assist motorists when needed.

They will also be out to ensure motorists are driving in a safe and responsible manner.

If you must travel, please remember these winter weather driving tips:

  • Reduce speed
  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly
  • Avoid making sharp turns or braking suddenly
  • Know your brakes
  • Do not text and drive

If you find yourself sliding, remember to take your foot off the gas and do not slam on your brakes.

“There is an element of excitement every time we have snowfall. We want everyone to be safe and responsible if they find themselves on the road tomorrow,” said Sheriff Fuson.
