We ask that if you do not have to be out, please stay home and avoid traveling. In the event that you do have to venture out, please take extra time to reach your destination and slow down. Increase your distance between you and the vehicles in front of you, and allow extra stopping distance when approaching intersections and vehicles stopped in front of you. Starting to slow early will allow motorist to use minimal braking and not lock their tires up causing the vehicle to slide instead of stopping. Gradually accelerate from a stop keeping tires from spinning.
Bell County Sheriff’s Department will continue to monitor road conditions as we move through the day and overnight.
