Winter Weather Driving & Safety Tips

During a winter storm, especially one of this foretasted severity, it is always best to stay off the roads (most traffic crashes happen within the first two hours after a storm starts.). But if you must drive, we urge you to follow these safe driving tips:

Get road conditions by calling 511 or visiting, and always monitor local media (Additionally, the County now offers a map of our Live Traffic Cameras, which can be used to check road conditions.)
Always keep your tank full of gas.
Is your vehicle ready for winter? Check VDOT’s website for tips.
Clear the snow and ice from your vehicle’s roof, hood and trunk and especially from the windows, mirrors and lights.
Don’t pass a snowplow or spreader unless it is absolutely necessary. Treat these as you would emergency response vehicles.
Keep a safe distance of at least five seconds behind other vehicles and trucks that are plowing the road.
