Winter roads mean a return to winter driving skills

Winter weather brings winter driving, and every year, it seems a number of Michiana drivers need to be reminded how to handle the roads.

The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning says most winter driving crashes are caused by drivers going too fast for conditions. Speed limits may be too fast for conditions when roads are snowy or icy. The Department says in Michigan alone during the winter driving seasons of 2016 through 2020, there were more than 200,000 crashes on state roads. 370 were killed, and more than 2,500 were seriously injured.

All drivers should take responsibility for winter driving safety. Learn more at https://www.michigan.gov/msp/divisions/ohsp/safety-programs/winter-driving.
