Drivers Take Caution To Changing Road Conditions

Posted: Updated:

With warmer temperatures in the Magic City,it's safe to say spring is on the minds of many North Dakotans. But, that doesn't mean motorists can throw outtheir winter driving habits just yet.

With temperatures reaching the 40's,the snow and ice has begun to melt causing unforeseen road problems for somedrivers. As temperatures cool off at night, frost and black ice can makeroadways slick.

So, the North Dakota Highway Patrolis encouraging everyone to adjust their speed and watch for changing roadconditions as we transition from winter to spring.

"We need to make sure that weencourage that just because it's nice out, you still need to follow the trafficlaws and drive defensively and wear their seat belts," says Captain Gary Orluck of the NorthDakota Highway Patrol.

Another issue drivers may have to deal with this time ofyear is pooling water along county and township roads. Drivers are askedto drive around large pools of water and find alternative routes.
