HIGHWAY SAFETY ADMINISTRATOR ADVISES AGAINST DRIVING THURSDAY

By Nate Gonner 12/20/2012

              WITH THE FIRST SNOWFALL OF THE YEAR COMES AN NEW CHALLEGE FOR DRIVERS.

 

              NEBRASKA’S HIGHWAY SAFETY ADMINISTRATOR FRED ZWONECHEK SAYS MOST OF THE ACCIDENTS HAPPEN ON THE ROADS DURING THE FIRST SNOWFALL BECAUSE PEOPLE DON’T SLOW DOWN AS MUCH AS THEY SHOULD.

               THIS CAUSES THEM TO SLIP OFF THE ROAD AND INTO DITCHES OR GETTING INTO FENDER BENDERS WITH PEOPLE IN FRONT OF THEM.

 

              ZWONECHEK SAYS IF YOU DO HIT THE ROADS THURSDAY, MAKE SURE TO BRING YOUR CELL PHONE AND BRING BLANKETS JUST IN CASE YOU DO GET STRANDED.

 

              HE IS ALSO SUGGESTING PEOPLE MAKE SURE THEY FILL UP THEIR GAS TANKS BEFORE HITTING THE ROAD SO YOU CAN KEEP WARM WHILE HELP COMES.

 

              ZWONECHEK SAYS FOR THOSE HITTING THE ROAD THIS WEEKEND FOR YOUR HOLIDAY DESTINATION TO CHECK ON THE ROAD CONDITIONS BETWEEN YOUR HOME AND YOUR DESTINATION.

 

              TO CHECK ON ROAD CONDITIONS IN NEBRASKA YOU CAN CALL 511 FROM YOUR CELL PHONE.
