(UNDATED) - The first major storm of this winter season is anticipated to affect the vast majority of Indiana.

. Citizens are reminded to avoid traveling unless the trip is absolutely necessary.

Please keep these tips in mind:

• Do not call city, county or state police to check on road conditions - police agencies across the state want to keep phone lines open for emergency phone calls.

• For up-to-date weather information the best source is your favorite TV or radio station or check the National Weather Service at http://www.crh.noaa.gov/ind/

• Visit www.TrafficWise.IN.gov or dial toll-free 1-800-261-ROAD (7623) for updated Indiana travel information, including road conditions, road closures, construction information, crashes and other traffic alerts.

• If you must drive during any period of the storm a fully charged and functioning cell phone is your best friend.

• If involved in a crash and no one is injured and the involved vehicles are still drivable, move to a safe area to exchange names, vehicle and license plate information, along with driver license number and insurance agent name and phone number with the other driver.

• During severe weather conditions law enforcement will be busy responding to emergency calls and will not be able to take reports of crashes where there is only damage to property.

• Vehicles left abandoned along interstate and state road right-of-ways are subject to immediate removal during inclement weather events.


Indiana State Police advice do not drive during the winter storm.
