Slippery Driving Ahead

It’s time to get used to winter driving again. Fond du Lac County Sheriff’s Captain Ryan Waldschmidt says the first real snowfall of the year keeps Sheriff’s deputies extremely busy.The first snow storm is always one of their heaviest days for reports of vehicle runoffs and crashes. It is advised that if there is snow go slow. But getting acquainted with road conditions before you hit the road can be helpful. Waldschmidt says the 511 Wisconsin website is a good one to find out conditions or plan a route of travel. You can also sign up to get email and text messages about changes in road conditions. The Fond du Lac area could get several inches of snow overnight.
