Caltrans is reminding everyone to drive safely during storm activity expected on the Central Coast this week.

The public can do a few simple things during the next round of expected storm activity:

  • Reduce your speed in wet driving conditions especially when Caltrans workers, law enforcement or tow truck drivers are near the roadway.
  • Never drive through moving water if you are unable to see the ground; your vehicle could be swept off the road.
  • Be aware of electronic message boards and other road signs alerting the public of changing road conditions, lane closures or detours.
  • Make sure that your vehicle is in good working order. This includes the condition of your brakes, windshield wiper blades and tires.
  • Inspect your head and taillights to ensure that they are working properly so that you have maximum visibility on the highway.

 

Call 911 if you see any hazards/incidents on the highway.
