TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KLIX) – Winter is here, and that means you have to drive a little different on the roads and highways than you do during the warm months.

In an effort to help keep people safe on the roads during the cold months, the Idaho Transportation Department has launched its annual winter safety campaign.

The campaign offers information and safe driving tips via social media, online videos and information sent to the press.

“Short videos will present information on how to use Idaho’s 511 Traveler Services system, how to safely share the road with snowplows, maintain your vehicle during the winter months and drive safely in winter conditions,” said Adam Rush, the public involvement coordinator for the transportation department. “New videos will be posted to Facebook and Twitter, approximately every other week."

Additional winter safety information can be found at the ITD winter maintenance site.
