MOTORISTS SHOULD PREPARE FOR POSSIBLE ICY WEATHER

LYNCHBURG – The Virginia Department of Transportation (VDOT) is encouraging motorists to know the weather and road conditions before driving during the overnight hours of Tuesday and into the early hours of Wednesday morning.

VDOT crews are continuing to monitor the forecast and make plans to respond accordingly. Because the storm is supposed to begin as rain, pre-treating will not take place. However, should icing occur, abrasives will be applied to assist motorists with traction.

VDOT reminds drivers to use caution in winter weather, and;
· Check current weather, road conditions and traffic before traveling
· Slow down and allow for extra time to reach your destination
· Keep a safe distance of at least five seconds behind other vehicles, particularly trucks treating the road
· Be aware of potentially icy areas such as shady spots, bridges and overpasses
