Increase your following distance so you'll have plenty of time to stop for vehicles ahead of you. Also remember that every vehicle handles differently; this is particularly true when driving on wet roads and even more so on wet roads with leaf cover. • Turn Around Don't Drown: People often underestimate the power of rushing water. It only takes 12 inches of rushing water to carry away most cars, and just two feet of rushing water can carry away most trucks and SUVs. The CDC reports the most common type of flood-related drowning occurs when a vehicle is driven into hazardous flood water. When you see the road is flooded, or if there are barriers blocking the road, turn around. • Look Out for Pedestrians and Cyclists: Always be extra cautious in hard-to-see conditions, like nighttime or in bad weather. Before You Go • P l a n Y o u r T r a v e l a n d R o u t e : B e f o r e h e a d i n g o u t , m a k e sure to check the road conditions and traffic. Check local stations f o r r o a d c l o s u r e s a n d e v a c u a t i o n r o u t e s , i f n e c e s s a r y . • Stock Your Vehicle: Put together an emergency roadside kit. Inclement weather can develop quickly, so plan ahead and prepare in advance. A charged cell phone tops the list of suggested items since it allows you to call for help when and where you need it. Icy Roads/Snow • Slow Down! Roads can become slick quickly when temperatures drop, especially in places prone to freezing, such as bridges. Do not crowd other vehicles, as stopping distances are longer on slippery road surfaces. • Make Sure Your Vehicle is Ready: Are the tires properly inflated and is the tread adequate? Is there enough fuel, antifreeze and windshield washer fluid? Have you cleared snow and frost from vehicle surfaces? • Have an emergency kit: Visit: for ideas on what to stock in your kit and other safe driving information. The Clinton Township Police, along with Annandale Hose Company, Fraternal Order Of Police Lodge 182 and other community organizations, will be holding our Annual Halloween Bash in Annandale Village. Please join us for free fun, music, food, drinks and of course, to show off those costumes with some trick-or-treating! Exact time and location to be announced, please follow us on FaceBook and Instagram for more details and updates. We look forward to another fun year!
