KSP offers winter weather driving tips

BOWLING GREEM, Ky. – With today’s snow flurries, winter is fast approaching, and Kentucky State Police want motorists to be safe on potentially icy roads.

On days where the temperature is near or below freezing, there is potential for slick spots on the roadways.

KSP has some tips for safe driving in snow and ice.

Drive slowly and increase following distance.

Use caution when on bridges or overpasses. Those freeze faster than other roads.

Have a blanket and phone charger in your car in case you get stuck and need to stay warm and call for help.

Also keep your gas tank full so you can heat your vehicle in case of an emergency.
