Stay safe traveling during the holiday season

December 19, 2018

NORFOLK - With the holiday season in full swing, the Nebraska State Patrol wants to remind you to be safe when out on the roads.

Troop B Trooper Gena Jones says the roadways are busy this time of year, and you need to be aware of your surroundings.

Jones says also make sure everything is working properly with your vehicle.

“We have a limited amount of daylight right now, and I see a lot of cars after dusk with headlights off so get those on. You also want to make sure your windshield wipers are working, we’ve had some problems already with vehicles and the recent storms. Check you tires as well, you don’t want to get stranded in this weather it’s pretty cold.”

Jones says if you’re traveling over the holidays, plan ahead and keep up to date on the weather conditions.

Trooper Jones was a guest on News Talk WJAG’s monthly Tips from a Trooper segment.
