Winter driving tips

Onalaska, WI (WXOW)- Most of the accidents we see during the winter months are due to excessive speed and slippery roads.

Police remind drivers to slow down, leave a safe following distance and cut back on distractions.

"I worked on a crash the other night someone who probably didn't slow down. She went off the ramp. We've had roll over accidents upon interstates and on HWY 53. It ices over quite a bit and we're seeing through past years and starting this year crashes again up there," says Dan McCluskey, Onalaska patrolman.

Be careful on highways and bridges which tend to be extremely icy in winter conditions. Onalaska police say they see a number of accidents on highway 53..
