Late-January Winter Storm Serves Safety Reminders

While the worst of Wednesday’s winter storm is over, it serves as a good reminder to give snow plows plenty of space. 

Illinois Transportation Secretary Omer Osman says when winter conditions hit Central Illinois, workers of IDOT will be out in full force before, during, and after the storm. He adds this requires the public’s cooperation. 


Illinois State Police Director Brenden Kelly advises against traveling in winter conditions. He says even going the speed limit can be too fast for some winter storms. He adds that you should give yourself extra time to get where you’re going and give other drivers extra space. 


If you must travel, IDOT recommends checking current road conditions at GettingAroundIllinois.com, or follow IDOT on Facebook or Twitter.
