are asked to use caution when meeting and passing vehicles and passing
snowplows as today’s snow fall may create “snow fog” or whiteout conditions.
Snow fog occurs when plowing light snow or cross winds from vehicles when
meeting or passing them. The best practice for
motorists is to be patient and wait until the snowplow pulls over to pass.
Also, it is recommended to reduce your speed and double your normal following
distance when following a snowplow.
Motorists are encouraged to reduce speeds, drive
according to the conditions and always wear your seat belt. All travelers are encouraged to monitor road conditions
as weather conditions occur and use caution while traveling. For road
information, call 511 from any type of phone or go to the Travel Information
