... Winter travel safety...

Winter weather preparedness week continues through Saturday,
October 21st, as proclaimed by governor hickenlooper. Preparedness
is a big part of this Campaign. Before winter weather arrives in
earnest, it is highly recommended that you prepare your car or
truck for winter travel.

And the best way to prevent treacherous winter travel is to avoid
it. This can be done by staying informed about current weather and
Road conditions as well as the latest weather forecasts. Information
on Road conditions in Colorado is available on the web at
www.Cotrip.Org or by calling 1-877-315-7623 which can also be
accessed by dialing 511 from anywhere in Colorado.

If you should become stranded during a winter storm, stay with your
vehicle and do not panic. If accompanied by others, take turns
sleeping. Run the motor every hour for about ten minutes to
maintain warmth, but keep windows Open A little to prevent the
buildup of Carbon monoxide. Make sure the exhaust pipe is not
blocked. Keep the car visible with brightly colored cloths.

Caution is advised when traveling along avalanche prone roads,
especially during and shortly after a heavy snowstorm or during
periods of rapid snowmelt.

Persons traveling in light weight or high profile vehicles should
avoid travel during strong wind events.

Roads which appear to be clear in the wintertime may actually be
coated with a thin layer of ice, commonly known as black ice. If
you detect black ice, you should reduce your speed.

Please follow these winter travel safety recommendations which
could save your life.
