Winter Weather

We are currently experiencing an increase in vehicles off the road and crashes in the northern areas of NH, Central, and the Seacoast.

The New Hampshire State Police would like to remind drivers that road travel is anticipated to be the greatest hazard from this storm. We would like to remind everyone to limit road travel for Saturday day and all the way into the evening hours to allow our partners from the Department of Transportation to clear and treat the roads.

If you must be on the roadways, please slow down and allow extra space between your vehicle and others. Winter conditions call for different driving tactics. When there is ice and snow…please, take it slow! Slower speeds, slower acceleration, slower steering, and slower braking.

Please keep both hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Driving in a snowstorm is not the time to be driving while distracted.

When sharing the roads with a plow truck…please, don't crowd the plow. Don't travel beside a plow truck for long periods of time. A snowplow operator's field of vision is restricted; you may see them, but they may not see you.

Before venturing out, please make sure you've cleared the snow off all of your vehicle's windows and lights, to include your brake lights and turn signals. And always buckle up!

The best place to be during a snow storm is not on the roadways. But if you must be driving, please give yourself extra time to reach your destination safely. It's not worth putting yourself and others in a dangerous situation.
