Seasonal Driving Habits

Posted: Updated:
As the seasons change, so does the road conditions. Another thing that should be changing is your driving habits.

Officials at North Dakota Highway Patrol are urging drivers to be prepared for unexpected road conditions while traveling.

Whether it's construction crews on the road or unpredictable weather, it’s important to stay focused.

"Driving should be your full time job when you're driving. And, it’s especially true when you enter into the summer time where there is more traffic and more congestion. There’s construction zones, there’s other things going on around us all the time. And, it’s very important that we pay attention and we watch specifically to what we are doing,” says Capt. Gary Orluck of the N.D. Highway Patrol.

Another thing to look out for is traffic light signals that are out. Orluck says to treat these intersections as a four way stop sign.
