(UNDATED) - The Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT) is focusing attention on what is likely to be the first statewide winter weather event of the season, and is asking drivers to do the same.

INDOT's drivers are trained and its salt supplies are stocked for winter operations well in advance of Winter Weather Preparedness Week, which begins Nov. 17.

Drivers are asked to promote their own safety and that of others by reducing their speed according to road conditions and increasing the distance between themselves and other vehicles, especially INDOT's yellow plow trucks.

INDOT's top winter priority is snow and ice prevention and removal to ensure its more than 30,000 lane miles of interstates, U.S. highways and state routes are as safe as possible.

Motorists can plan ahead to safely reach their destinations by staying updated on the latest weather and road conditions. 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. For social media updates during winter weather, visit www.twitter.com/INDOTSouthwest and www.facebook.com/INDOTSouthwest. Be sure to "like" and follow them for road condition updates and restrictions year-round.
