Weather reports show that this winter is full of snow.

We have had two storms come and a few more coming soon.

As high school students we are all new at driving. For most of us this is our first snow that we have to drive in.

Driving in the snow can be extremely dangerous. Every year nearly 900 people die from being in a car accident in the snow. 76,000 people are injured per year from the same cause.

Here is some safe tips from Officer Jones:
1. Drive slow.

2. Keep a safe distance between you and the car in front of you.

3. When in doubt, don’t go out.

With these safety precautions in mind, stay safe on the roads.
