MILWAUKEE — It’s certainly tough out there on the roads on Monday, December 28th as snow fell, and that snow was eventually expected to turn into a wintry mix — with sleet and freezing rain possible.
A Winter Storm Warning took effect Monday morning for all of southeastern Wisconsin.
That warning remains in effect until 6:00 a.m. Tuesday.
For some, Monday was the first time this year that they were forced to drive amid a wintry mess.
The PSA you’ll see below from the Wisconsin Department of Transportation illustrates the importance of taking it slow when roads are slick.
The PSA, which was released back in 2011, shows “drivers” on skates on the ice — to illustrate what can happen on slick roads when people are distracted, or driving too quickly.
It seems in Wisconsin we all have to re-learn how to drive each winter amid the snow, the ice, and the freezing rain.
Take it slow out there folks!
The PSA is part of the Wisconsin DOT’s “Zero in Wisconsin” campaign — an effort to aim for zero deaths on Wisconsin’s roads.
