“Winter weather provides new challenges and responsibilities to the public and the Kentucky State Police,” says KSP spokesman Sgt. Michael Webb.

“We ask drivers to be prepared to meet the challenges of the upcoming winter driving season.  Plan ahead, be sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained, drive defensively and ensure their vehicle is properly maintained to handle the effects of cold temperatures.”

  • Avoid travel unless necessary when winter weather is in your area.
  • Slow down.
  • Always wear your seat belt.

  • Leave early – allow more travel time; expect delays.
  • Increase distance between vehicles – it takes significantly longer to stop on snow covered or icy roadways. .
  • Use caution on bridges and overpasses as they are susceptible to freezing before roadways.
