Winter Weather in the Forecast; Motorists Advised to Monitor Conditions

Winter Weather in the Forecast; Motorists Advised to Monitor Conditions

Clearfield – PennDOT advises motorists to be ready for winter travel late tonight into tomorrow morning. Forecasts show the potential for accumulating snow throughout PennDOT’s District 2. This region includes Cameron, Clearfield, Clinton, Centre, Elk, Juniata, McKean, Mifflin and Potter counties.

Snowfalls of 1 to 3 inches are expected in much of this region. Some areas could experience sleet this evening.

During a winter storm, PennDOT’s primary focus is on interstates and expressways. Secondary roads are also serviced next, as these serve as detours and alternate routes. Other numbered routes are then treated. PennDOT maintains a schedule to ensure each type of road receives attention, but motorists are reminded that snow accumulations could be present on some routes as plow trucks cycle through their routes.

Motorists should monitor weather forecasts and check road conditions before beginning any travel. Visit www.511PA.com or call 511 from any telephone for access to current conditions on more than 2,900 miles of roadway.

When traveling during a winter storm, drivers should adjust their speed to accommodate wet, slushy or snow-covered roads. Winter driving conditions require that motorists allow for a greater following distance between vehicles.

An emergency kit is recommended in all vehicles through the winter months. Kits should include non-perishable food, water, first-aid supplies, warm clothes, and a blanket and small snow shovel.

For more winter driving tips, visit PennDOT’s “Winter Driving” information center at www.JustDrivePA.com.

Do not blame PennDOT.
You started the vehicle, put it in gear and sped away.
Slid off the road?, shoulda slowef down.
Rammed a car in front of you?, shoulda slowed down.
Slid into a ditch while negotiating a curve?, shoulda slowed down.
It's your vehicle, it's your responsibility.

Ya!What if you do drive super slow in bad winter weather.You leave extra early for work,have good winter tires.Yet your still sliding all over the road and end up crashing.Then I believe some of the blame should be on penn-dot.This happens often around these parts.

For weeks they've been advising of this snowstorm and how bad it would be. You think someone in Penn-Dot would have been prepared and had the roads ready.

So basically everyone expects PennDot to control the weather now?? My dad worked for PennDot for 35 years and I watched him get up at 3am and work 14 hour days just so idiots like you could get to work a little quicker. This is PA people, if you can't deal with a little snow then move on!
