Oklahoma City, Oklahoma 2020-12-15 07:48:02 –
Texas County, Oklahoma ()-The state-wide crew is preparing for the next winter weather as a second snowstorm is expected to move to Oklahoma on Tuesday.
Panhandle crew members are currently reporting smooth locations in Cimarron and Beaver counties, Texas, according to officials from the Oklahoma Department of Transportation. They also deal with bridges and highways in those areas.
Drivers are advised to pay close attention to the weather forecast throughout the day as the situation is expected to change.
Those who have to travel late today need to plan extra time to reach their destination and pay attention to clearing operations. For safety, the driver must be at least 200 feet behind these trucks.
In snow and ice conditions, the driver is required to:
- Stay about 200 feet behind the road cleaner. The crew needs room to maneuver and can plow and spray without notice.
- Allow extra space between vehicles to ensure sufficient distance to apply the brakes.
- It looks wet on the road, but beware of the thin layer of ice, “black ice.”
- Be patient, plan your trip in advance, and take extra time to reach your destination.
