AND PLEASE, DON'T BE A FIRST SNOWFALL VICTIM!
(Video: WOOD TV8 YouTube) And this was from West Michigan last year around December. You know we're just as bad. Especially around 127 & 496.
It always happens. The first snowfall hits and people act like they forgot how to drive or what exactly all that white stuff is.
Remember to give yourself some extra time, give the other drivers some extra space, watch your speed (but let's not drive like super slow and scared), and DON'T BE OVERCONFIDENT cause you know...TRUCK!
Take your time, be careful, plan ahead. And be patient. Because even if you do drive carefully, someone else won't. And you'll probably be stuck in traffic as you drive past some folks who ended up in the ditch.
Might want to think about some winter tires while we're at it.
