Another round of wintry weather- with a mix of several different types of precipitation- is expected in Missouri on Sunday. On the radar is rain, freezing rain, sleet and snow for most of the state.
MoDOT reminds motorists to keep in mind that bridges and overpasses generally experience freezing conditions first. MoDOT offers several tips:
• Slow down and give yourself plenty of braking distance;
• Steer and brake gently;
• Accelerate slowly at intersections;
• Allow plenty of space between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead of you;
• Stay back 100 feet behind snow plows that may be spreading salt. Do not pass snow plows- even when on a multi-lane road.
MoDOT also has a toll-free customer-service line, which is answered 24 hours a day. A customer-service representative can be reached by calling (888) ASK-MoDOT (275-6636).
