Quincy Police Department asking people to drive defensively

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

 

As colder temperatures arrived that means icier roads.  Roads are very slick and could be even more slick if another snowfall comes down. 

That means the Quincy Police Department is urging people to not only be careful but to drive defensively Monday night.  Police Officer Dave Ludwig said this is one of the most dangerous times to drive, and asks drivers to take precautions while out on the road Monday night.

"Be very cautious at intersections. Just because you have the right of way doesn't mean the driver coming from the other direction is going to be able to stop, so always be prepared that someone may run a stop sign and just be aware of your surroundings," Ludwig said. 

Ludwig also said if you do go out on New Year's Eve, to make sure you have a designated driver.
