Wintry weather travel is strongly discouraged as snow, sleet and freezing rain will leave roads a mess. Officials say the biggest thing to remember when driving on slick roads is that you should dramatically reduce speed and keep at least three car lengths distance between you and the car in front of you.
Dress warmly and make sure your cell phone is charged. If you do run off the road, it could take awhile for wreckers to get to you. The best advice...don't drive unless you absolutely have to be out on the roads.
Rutherford County Sheriff Robert Arnold says drive safely during the predicted icy or snowy conditions this week. Traditionally, many drivers are involved in numerous crashes.
Drivers who are in a crash with no injuries and damage under $1,000 may exchange information and give the information to the insurance company, the sheriff adds.
