Expect noise and vibration; this means the ABS is working. Always look and steer where you want to go.
If your vehicle gets stuck in the snow, gently rock it back and forth to gain momentum. Place sand, salt, or cat litter under the wheels for traction. If none of these things work, stay with your vehicle, and using your cell phone, call for a wrecker if no damage is done to your vehicle or surrounding property. If your vehicle has been damaged or property has been damaged, call the Berrien County Sheriff’s Department’s non-emergency number (269) 983-7141 for a report.
Be aware of emergency vehicles and road commission work crews trying to make your roads safe. SLOW DOWN!!!
Remember, Michigan has a basic speed law that requires you to keep your car under control at all times. You may only be able to drive as fast as the weather conditions allow. The Berrien County Sheriff's Department wants everyone to be prepared, be alert and be safe. Remember, give yourself more time to get to your destinations.
Do not overestimate your physical ability when clearing your home or driveway of snow. The cold weather prevents us from working the same way that we do in the warmer months. Cold weather can cause an increase in blood pressure and hides some of the indicators of being tired that we would feel in warm weather. Removing snow is rigorous work and may trigger heart –related medical problems that are often dismissed as being related to muscle strain from throwing snow around.
Here are some tips for safe shoveling:
• Check with your Doctor to make sure you are in good health for such activity.
• Warm up your muscles before starting.
• Shovel many light loads instead of fewer heavy ones.
• Take frequent breaks inside a warm place.
• Drink plenty of water.
• Head indoors right away if your chest starts hurting, you feel lightheaded or short of breath, your heart starts racing, or some other physical change makes you nervous. If you think you are having a heart attack, or symptoms consistent with one, call 911 or your local emergency number.
• Check on neighbors and family who may not be in good health. Lend a hand if you are able.
Sheriff Bailey and all of his Deputies want to ensure everybody is having a safe winter season. The cold weather can be dangerous, but in taking some precautions we can work together to lessen many risks associated with our Michigan winters.
