MNDot Advising Winter Driving Care

Driving conditions throughout west central Minnesota remain extremely hazardous due to icy roads, limited visibility and blowing and drifting snow.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation is advising motorists not to travel unless absolutely necessary and should use extreme caution and slow down when traveling.

MnDOT reminds motorists to be patient while snowplow operators work to improve driving conditions.

  • During a storm motorists should stay back at least five car lengths behind the plow, far from the snow cloud; snowplow operators will pull over when it is safe to do so to allow traffic build-up to pass.
  • Stay alert – Snowplows turn or exit frequently and often with little warning; they may also travel over centerlines or partially in traffic to further improve road conditions.
  • Slow down – Snowplows typically move at slower speeds.
