As Snow Hits Western SD, Officials Send Out Safe Driving Reminder

As Snow Hits Western SD, Officials Send Out Safe Driving Reminder
RAPID CITY, SD -

Rapid City is feeling the effects of the winter-weather system that moved into western South Dakota overnight.

Previously warm temperatures fell into the teens Thursday morning, turning a light drizzle into a sheet of ice that was followed by some snow and gusty winds. Visibility is reduced in Rapid City and the Black Hills region and roads are slippery, snow-packed and dangerous.

Officials with the Rapid City Fire Department say even the simple act of going to work can be dangerous when roads are slick. The department wants to remind drivers to be extra cautious on the roads.

The department also passed along these tips:

  • If you are stopped or stalled in your vehicle, stay in your car.
  • Allow plenty of time for travel.
  • Buckle up and use child safety seats properly.
  • Slow down and increase distances between cars.
  • Keep your eyes open for pedestrians walking in the road.
