PennDOT Urges Motorists to Watch for Icy Conditions

5346383254_12434c1433_zJEFFERSON COUNTY, Pa. – With a National Weather Service freezing rain advisory in effect for parts of the region, PennDOT is urging motorists to travel with caution.

Weather conditions can change quickly. Drivers should beware of roads that may look wet, but are actually frozen.

If travel is necessary during winter weather, motorists should be prepared to slow down, increase following distances and use extra caution on bridges and ramps. State law requires that headlights be turned on whenever windshield wipers are being used.

PennDOT also reminds motorists not to drive through standing water on roads.
