MONTGOMERY — Winter storm forecasts for north Alabama likely will result in snow‐covered or icy roads and hazardous driving conditions throughout northern Alabama. Alabama State Troopers encourage all motorists to drive with extreme caution and to avoid roadways when weather conditions are dangerous.

Troopers offer the following tips to help ensure safe winter travel:

Motorists are encouraged to monitor local news for information on weather conditions and travel advisories and to contact Trooper posts only to report traffic crashes or other emergencies. Motorists with cell phones may dial *HP (*47) toll‐free to report roadway emergencies to a Trooper post.

In addition, motorists are urged to be alert for emergency vehicles and personnel and to obey the state’s “move over” law.

For information on road closings, please visit the road conditions page of the Alabama Department of Transportation’s website, www.dot.state.al.us.
