“What’s New in County 22?”
This month I would like to give you a few tips I have mentioned before on winter driving. We just missed a big snowstorm but I am sure our turn will be coming soon. Please drive safely.
Driving safely on icy roads
If you do pass a snowplow, be sure that you have a clear vision ahead of you before passing. Allow plenty of room when passing, and do not cut in too quickly. On two lane roads, snowplow drivers will periodically pull over to let vehicles pass.
10. If you see emergency lights ahead, please give them a brake and slow down. Police/Fire/EMS may be standing along the road assisting another driver who went into the ditch.
11. If you go into the ditch, please give us a call either way. We need to know if you need assistance and even if you do not. That will allow us to know everyone is safe and we will not have to come looking for you after you got a ride. We may even have your vehicle towed not knowing you had other plans or a different wrecker operator you want to use to get it out.
And if you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me anytime, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org, or stop by to see me.
Thanks and be safe,
Sheriff Mike Tschirgi
