NH DOT Says Slow Down

NHDOTThe New Hampshire Department of Transportation (NHDOT) reminds motorists to slow down and limit travel during lengthy periods of ongoing snowfall, falling temperatures, and gusty winds.
“This is a cold storm and black pavement can be deceiving when anti-icing chemicals have limited effectiveness,” says NHDOT Director of Operations. Bill Janelle. “Conditions in many locations may be worse than they appear. Right now the message is slow down. No motorist should be currently going more than 45 MPH on any New Hampshire road.”
Janelle also cautions drivers to avoid sudden breaking or steering, do not use cruise control, give yourself extra time, and leave plenty of room between yourself and other vehicles. Unnecessary travel should be avoided if possible.
Advisory speed limits have been reduced to 45 MPH on the Interstates and Turnpikes and NHDOT crews have been out since early this morning plowing and treating roads across New Hampshire.
