KSP Offers Winter Driving Tips

Date of News Release: 12/21/2012

(FRANKFORT, Ky.) - With the onset of winter and the possibility that motorists may have to drive in inclement weather, the Kentucky State Police (KSP) are offering safe driving tips.

The weather in Kentucky is unpredictable and this time of year you never know when to expect black ice, snow, icy roads or a mixture of road conditions. KSP is asking motorists to prepare in advance for the winter driving months ahead. "Winter provides new challenges and responsibilities to the public and the Kentucky State Police," says KSP Commissioner Rodney Brewer.

"We ask that drivers be prepared to meet the challenges of the upcoming winter season in Kentucky. Plan ahead, make sure everyone in the vehicle is properly restrained, drive defensively and be sure the vehicle is properly maintained to handle the effects of cold temperatures."

KSP reported that slippery roads were the contributing factor in 14,913 crashes and 63 fatalities in 2011.

Here are a few simple steps to help keep you on the road and less stressed.
