It’s no secret icy roads can be dangerous. Day time driving can be bad enough but at night it can be even more dangerous. Patches of ice on the road that are barely visible under snow and slush during the day become that much harder to see at night.
The winter isn’t over. While we are experiencing a bit of a thaw, the weather could turn again, leaving the wet streets a sheet of ice. Make sure you are giving yourself enough time to get where you’re going when the roads are bad. Always allow plenty of distance between you and the car in front of you and SLOW DOWN.
The speed limit is just that…the LIMIT to your speed. Use your best judgment and slow way down if you have to. Get to your destination safely. Keep the roads safe for all motorists in Kansas and Missouri.
