Road Treatments Don’t Always Work Below 25 Degrees

MODOT explains that Single digit temperatures and below zero wind chills also make clearing the roadways even more difficult as chemicals used to treat covered roads lose their effectiveness below 25 degrees.
Plan to double or triple your average commute times once precipitation starts. This round of winter weather will affect both morning and evening commutes for the next two days.

If you should slide off the road or be involved in a crash, stay inside your vehicle with your seat belt buckled until help arrives, MODOT says.
