Street crews are on alert and will begin salting city snow routes if ice or snow begins to accumulate on the roadway.

Here are some safety tips:

· Use extra caution when driving over bridges and overpasses.

· Turn off your automatic sprinkler systems.

· Remember that posted speed limits are only to be followed during ideal weather conditions. Slow down while driving on snow or ice.

· Give salt trucks plenty of room – stay at least 100 feet behind them so salt won't get thrown on your car.

· Plan ahead by getting up and leaving the house earlier.

· Keep at least a three-car distance from the car in front of you

· Steer and brake more slowly than usual.

· Keep warm shoes and clothes in your car.

· Clear all snow and ice from your vehicle before setting out.

· Proceed carefully through intersections

· Have a plan if you slide off the road – who are you going to call?
