Virginia State Police Urge Drivers to Stay Safe as Joaquin Approaches

Motorists Reminded to Drive to Save Lives... How to stay safe with the potential for more rain, storms and floodwaters:

•Use your headlights! State law requires headlights on when windshield wipers are activated. Plus, the headlights make you more visible to other drivers when visibility is limited in a heavy downpour.

•Slow your speed to safely navigate inclement road and weather conditions.

•Turn Around. Don’t Drown. – Never drive through standing water. What looks like a puddle can be deep and swift-moving water, so don’t risk it. Turn around and find another, safer route to your destination.

•Always buckle up.

•Never drive distracted.

Dial 511 for Road Conditions. Reserve 911 and #77 for emergencies calls only.
