January 12 – The Illinois State Police have issued a Winter Weather Travel Advisory as they address numerous slide-offs and crashes on interstate highways across Central Illinois.
All motorist are encouraged to stay home and cancel travel plans unless it is imperative. If travel is absolutely necessary, motorists should allow adequate time for travel, vastly reduce speeds, and increase following distances to aid in reactionary time for hazards encountered along the highways.
Please be mindful and move over for first responders if encountered on the roadway. Also, give the snow plows plenty of room to work.
