Rhode Island launches new winter weather website
PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island officials have launched a new website with winter driving tips, statistics and links to travel planning resources.
The state Department of Transportation created the site to help Rhode Islanders prepare for winter weather.
DOT Director Michael Lewis says it's a good time to remind everyone about safe driving practices and steps to take to prepare their vehicles, such as checking tires, fluids and brakes.
The site features links to traffic cameras, travel advisories and detour and construction maps.
More information can be found on the site, www.dot.ri.gov/about/winter.
