[ARCHIVED] Weekly Update Article January 3, 2022

Safer Drivers, Safer Roads – With winter in full swing, road conditions can change as fast as the weather in Michigan.  Please remember the following:

  • Drive slow on ice and snow
  • Don’t use cruise control
  • Michigan law requires that you drive at a speed that is “reasonable and proper”, meaning even if you are driving under the posted speed limit, you could still get a speeding ticket if road conditions make that speed unreasonable for safe driving
  • Plan ahead and leave extra time to reach your destination
  • Keep an emergency preparedness kit in your vehicle stocked with batteries, flashlight, windshield scraper, jumper cables, shovel, blankets and a first aid kit in the event you get stuck or stranded.
  • If you do become stranded, stay with your car and keep your seatbelt on. Staying with your car is your safest bet. It’s not only a source of shelter and warmth, it makes it easier for rescuers to find you.

 Together we share the road; let’s share it safely.

Yours in Public Safety

 Sheriff Tom Reich
