    • DO NOT DRIVE IN LOW GEAR ON ICE OR SNOW! You’re just putting more torque and power to the wheels so for sure they would slip. Leave it in Drive and let your Vehicle Stability Control handle it. When that light comes on, back off the pedals. Brake real slow. Leave enough room. NEVER USE CRUISE CONTROL in the snow, ice or rain. Go really slow while turning. REALLY SLOW. Stay safe and hope the other guy knows what he’s doing. Be aware of everything around you, people are still blowing stop signs and tailgating.

  1. Thank you Chief Meyer for your leadership, and you concerns about the safety of drivers in town last night. The roads this morning were all well dry and salted. Thank you very much!! a five-star Chief!!!
