Special Message From Sheriff's Office Regarding Winter Weather: Driving Tips and More
Submitted by the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office:
The road crews have already been hard at work preparing for the expected snow by spraying the roads with the de-icing brine spray, and when the snow comes they'll be out with new snow plows to make sure our roads are as clear as possible. However, we have a lot of miles in our county, and our crews can only do so much. So with that being said, please take this into consideration:
Again, it's always best if you can stay home and not drive during inclement weather, but sometimes you can't. Your Sheriff's Office is equipped with a few 4x4 vehicles so we can help even when bad weather hits. Keep in mind when heavy snows come, sometimes there are multiple vehicle accidents that we can't respond to at once, and we must prioritize the calls that require the most attention.
Non-injury accidents and fender-benders will be placed on the bottom of the list while injured persons and those involving serious property damage will receive top priority.
We at the Edmonson County Sheriff's Office want everyone to be safe, and be smart!
