ST. CLOUD — It’s time to start refreshing your memory on winter driving skills. As the snow and ice develops on our area roads and bridges, public safety officials say we need to dramatically change our driving habits.

Larry Nadeau is the Director of Outreach at the Minnesota Highway Safety Center in St. Cloud. He says job one is to leave earlier to give yourself more time. By doing so, there is no need to rush and drive faster than the conditions allow.

Common themes for safe winter driving include, increase your stopping distance, don’t follow to closely, slow down and keep your eyes up ahead…looking as far as a quarter-mile up the road. By looking ahead, you can spot potential trouble and avoid a skid or crash.
