By Sgt. Troy Christianson Question: Now that winter is here, can you talk about winter travel safety? It not only involves knowing what to do while your vehicle is in motion, but preparing carefully before you leave the house and being ready in case of a crash. Before you leave 1.

You can avoid a ticket — and a crash — if you simply buckle up, drive at safe speeds, pay attention, and always drive sober.
