Fall is already a month in, and that means cold weather, and possibly snow, and winter is approaching fast. That has the Shelby County Sheriff's Office ready to make sure people will take the proper precautions so there will be as few car accidents as possible throughout the cold months. Shelby County Sheriff Don Koonce said people need to make sure to check their tire pressure, oil levels, wiper blades, and much more to be prepared for the weather.

Sheriff Koonce said it's important to get these things done before winter because if people procrastinate, and spin out on a county road when the snow hits, it can be difficult for a patrol car to get to the accident to help those in need.

Sheriff Koonce appeared on the NEWSTALK WTIM Morning Show live from our Shelbyville Studios.
