Winter travel information is updated every 30 minutes or as major changes occur.

MDT would like to remind motorists of some important winter driving tips:

Conduct a pre-trip vehicle inspection to ensure the vehicle is operating properly. Fluid level, wipers, belts, hoses, headlights, brake lights, and tires should all be in good condition.

Keep the vehicle’s windows, mirrors, and lights clear of snow and ice.

Drive with headlights on.

Do not use cruise control on wet or winter roads.

Drive at an appropriate speed for conditions. Driving too fast for conditions is often a contributing factor in crashes.

Be aware of potentially icy areas such as shady spots and bridges.

When approaching a snowplow from the rear, reduce speed immediately. Snowplows must operate at slower speeds to properly plow and sand. Be patient and don’t crowd the plow. The plow operators know the road well and will pull over as soon as there is a spot for vehicles to safely pass.

When approaching an oncoming plow, don’t crowd the center line.
