Oregon State Police urging drivers to be careful

In the past 36 hours, Oregon State Police have responded to over 750 traffic incidents statewide.

Of those incidents, 91 were road hazards, 266 disabled vehicles and 394 were crashes – most of them weather related.

OSP says no lives were lost, but are urging drivers to stay safe — that means don’t drive if you don’t have to, and to slow down.

Officers also want drivers to be prepared in case you get stuck or delayed – that means carrying food, water, blankets etc.

If you have to leave your car abandoned, OSP says to get it off the roadway and leave a note on the car explaining when you will return to get it.

If you do not get it off the road properly, it can be towed.

Drive safe!
