MnDOT officials said in a news release that "we are in this together" and MnDOT snow plow operators are doing their part to make highways safe.

Motorists should remember to:

  • Drive slowly on bridges, overpasses and tunnels.
  • Use a safe speed for winter driving conditions, regardless of the posted speed limit.
  • Keep a safe stopping distance from the vehicle in front of you.
  • Keep both hands on the steering wheel, eyes on the road and attention on your driving.
  • Give the snowplow operators plenty of room to work.
