Due to the recent severe cold and snow weather the Lake County Sheriff's Office wants to remind drivers about being safe on the roads when the unexpected occurs. Sheriff John Buncich says some tips include putting your flashers on when there is a problem, stay in your vehicle and don't make repairs while your vehicle is exposed to other traffic, call 9-1-1 and remain with your vehicle as an officer can provide assistance and a safer environment and to move your vehicle as far away from the traveled portion of the roadway as you can. Sheriff Buncich says there have been too many recent tragedies where drivers have exited their vehicles due to a breakdown or needing other assistance which resulted in fatalities.
