If you’re traveling, slow down and watch for ISP Troopers and other emergency responders.  They’re working along with ITD snowplows to get traffic moving as soon as possible.

Winter driving can be challenging; Reducing your speed, leaving more room between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead, and driving engaged and alert can reduce your chances of being involved in a crash.
