Louisiana DOTD Provides Tips for Driving in Winter Weather

As weather conditions get colder, be alert for icy roads and check www.511la.org for interstate and highway closures. It is always safer to wait for conditions to improve before heading out.

Remember these tips for driving in winter weather:

  • Don't drive if you don't have to.
  • Don't drive distracted.
  • Don't use cruise control.
  • Allow more stopping room in front of you.
  • Be mindful of back ice. Drive slow. 
  • Use lower gears on hills and slopes.
  • Look ahead and be prepared.
  • Watch out for first responders.
