- During wet weather, drivers are reminded of the following traffic safety tips: Use headlights. Increasing your visibility helps you to avoid slick and dangerous spots on the road, as well as helps other drivers see you better. Slow your speed. Slowing your speed gives you more time to safely react and avoid a crash. Drive your vehicle based on your ability to properly maintain control of your vehicle. Don’t tailgate. You need increased stopping distance on slick road surfaces, especially at intersections. Give yourself more space between vehicles traveling ahead of you in order to avoid rear end collisions. Buckle Up. Most crashes that occur during winter weather are caused by vehicles sliding into guardrails, off the road or other vehicles. Wearing a seat belt protects you and your passengers from being thrown around the inside the vehicle and suffering serious injury in a crash. Check Your Vehicle. Make sure your vehicle is in good working order for the conditions. Fill up the tank in advance. Check windshield wipers, windshield wiper fluid, tire tread, battery life, etc. Make sure to clear all windows and mirrors of snow before heading out. Go Prepared. Don’t leave home without a window scraper, blanket, bottled water, snack, cell phone charger and flashlight. For the latest in road conditions and updates, call 511 on a cell phone, go online to the VDOT Virginia Traffic Information Website at www.511virginia.org, or download the free 511 app. Virginians are advised to only call 911 or #77 on a cell phone in case of emergency. It is essential to keep emergency dispatch lines open for those in serious need of police, fire or medical response.

- Today is Law Enforcement Appreciation Day. Thank you to all University of Richmond Law Enforcement Officers for keeping our community safe.
- With snow potentially in the forecast, the Office of Emergency Management wanted to provide a handful of simple tips for driving during the winter season. Remember to slow down. Leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you, and give yourself extra time to reach your destination. Also make sure that your phone is fully charged and your tank is full of gas. Keep emergency supplies in your car. Lastly, always ensure your windshield and windows are full defrosted and any snow is removed from your vehicle before you drive.
