With snow in the forecast here are some quick facts:

· According to AAA, snow-covered roads and roads coated with ice, slush, or water cause nearly 500,000 vehicle crashes and more than 2,000 road deaths yearly

· Slow down and give yourself plenty of distance between vehicles in front and to the side of your vehicle. Bridges and overpasses freeze first.
