Police Urge Drivers to Use Caution During These Harsh Winter Conditions

Posted: Updated:

The blowing snow is causing many issues on the road, and police want to urge drivers to use extra caution.

The Wexford County Sheriff's Department let us tag along with them today as they drove around the county making sure people were driving safely during these harsh winter conditions.

Deputy Eric Garland says, "People often times think that they can just continue driving 55 miles per hour even though that's the speed limit, but when you have white out conditions or slippery snow covered conditions, that's not a safe driving speed."
