Also from State Police, we’re getting many reports from that drivers got into crashes after driving too fast for the snowy roadways during this week’s snowstorm.
Remember, the speed limit is the fastest you should be driving under optimal circumstances.
When the roadways are slushy or icy like they had been earlier this week, if you’re going to be traveling at all in those conditions you need to take it much more slowly than how you’d usually drive.
