|Topic: Know The Road You Are Driving|
weather, important road signs are easy to see. Warnings and cautions
about conditions ahead are obvious and road direction signs are clearly
visible (top photograph).
During the winter months in snow country, signs are often completely covered by snow or ice (bottom photograph). Notice the direction sign (blue circle) and the car ahead (red circle) are almost invisible. A dirty windshield on your SUV will contribute the this problem significantly.
Become familiar with the roads you regularly drive during clear weather so that you can be aware of conditions ahead even if signs are unreadable. Pay particular attention to signs around schools and crosswalks. Get in the habit of noting other landmarks near road warning or directional signs, landmarks such as tall buildings, trees, big rocks, etc. Any feature of the landscape that you can detect in a heavy snow storm that is right near a sign you would normally see will aid you greatly when you cannot see the signs.
