(UNDATED) - Indiana State Police say that if you have to be out in these road condition make sure you give room to INDOT, County Highway, and City/Town snowplows.

Give these workers room to operate.

The same is true of ambulances, fire trucks, wrecker/recovery vehicles and police vehicles.

If you see flashing emergency lights, slow down and move over.

Emergency services workers will be out during these times of inclement weather responding to calls for assistance. Give them a safe environment to work in.

Motorists are strongly encouraged to take steps to avoid getting stuck when crashes or snow drifts close Hoosier roads. While the INDOT's plow trucks are effective in plowing accumulating and drifting snow, drivers need to do their part to keep the roads open so the trucks can do their job. INDOT's trucks cannot plow through parked or stopped vehicles.

Drivers are strongly encouraged to not put themselves, local emergency medical services, or other public safety professionals in harm's way. Please listen to and follow county travel advisories to stay off the roads.
