High Winds

Posted in Safety

High winds ripped through several parts of country this week, knocking down trees and causing major power outages.  High winds can cause problems controlling your high profile vehicle.  Use extreme caution.

Reduce your speed and make steering corrections when you go from a protected area to an open area.

Heavy rain, snow or sleet often accompanies high winds. Be alert to wet or slippery areas (bridges, overpasses and ramps) and plan extra time for those conditions.
