Safe Driving Suggestions - High Winds

High Winds

* Be aware of vehicles around you. High winds are more problematic for drivers of trucks, buses, recreational vehicles, campers, and drivers who are towing trailers.

* Reduce your speed and correct your steering, especially when moving from a protected area to an unprotected area, or when meeting large vehicles.

* Wind is often accompanied by heavy rain or winter precipitation. Stay alert for slippery areas.
