It’s Winter Weather Awareness Day! 

It may not be snowing yet, but Winter Weather Awareness Day─November 15─just passed. What better opportunity to plan for the cold weather months and the sleet, ice, and snow they bring? Cold weather patterns affect road conditions and drivers need to adjust their approach to travel.

There is no mystery to driving on ice: It’s dangerous and should be avoided when possible. What some people describe as “black ice” is simply ice on a paved roadway. Ice is transparent, thus allowing the roadway to be seen beneath. Drivers sometimes blame this condition for their traffic crash. However, it is a driver’s responsibility to exercise the highest degree of care while driving on Missouri’s roadways (Section 304.012 RSMo.).
