Wow, the forecast says 41 degrees this week? Time to break out the short sleeves and flip flops! Too soon? Sadly, winter isn’t actually going away any time soon. It will get cold again, and it will snow again. Probably a lot. Dickinson PD responded to forty four traffic collisions this past week alone, and while sometimes the laws of physics seem to be taunting us, even in the worst of conditions, most collisions are preventable. Our officers are out there enforcing traffic laws, and educating motorists, with the hope of reducing the number of collisions. To help spread the word about keeping us all safe, let’s brush up on a few ways to stay safe while driving in the fluffy white stuff.

One way to keep the road safe is to give drivers a little extra cushion around their vehicles. With the compacted snow, lane markings can be difficult to see and some of our out of town guests might not know there are two lanes in some places. Not everyone pays attention to our rules so it’s important to allow yourself that little extra time to avoid their nonsense. Getting hurt in a collision isn’t worth being right about someone else’s mistake.

The best way to stay safe on the winter roads is to just slow down. Let’s face it, you’re not going anywhere important enough to justify playing slip and slide in a giant metal cage. The lack of friction affects us all, both winter babies and seasoned veterans. For a little humor, here is a short clip of one of our officers warning a driver about safe winter driving, and then falling prey to the icy roads on the walk back.
