December slides in Saturday on the icy streets and walks that are being left by November - as a not so fond farewell.

Once again, drivers are reminded to slow down. Never utilize cruise control on slippery roads. Stay back and well behind snow plows.

You need to take short or medium steps or shuffle your feet over icy areas. Don't carry heavy loads that can cause you to lose balance. Remember to curl your toes under and walk as flat footed as possible.

Place your full attention on walking on ice. Don't allow your attention to be diverted by getting your key out of your pocket.

Before venturing out on roads, drivers can find good information by dialing 511.
