One section deals with Winter Driving Tips. The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office is posting this helpful information for our residents.
Recently, our area received a medium amount of snowfall, but you cannot rule out the possibility of more extreme weather before this winter is over.
Also, please remember to clear all the snow and ice off your vehicle before hitting the highway. Snow and ice debris falling from a moving vehicle can be extremely dangerous to the driver and to the motorists around them.
Be safe, drivers!
