COLUMBIA - MoDOT is urging drivers to stay off the roads Saturday if travel is not necessary. If motorists must get on the road, they are advised to bring their mobile phone and winter survival gear.
Any driver on the road is advised to remember to wear a seat belt, drive at a speed appropriate for the conditions, allow extra time to reach destinations and give snow plows enough room to work on the road.
If a driver becomes involved in a non-injury accident, they are asked to call Columbia/Boone County's non-emergency phone number at 573-442-6131. Drivers can also find updates on road conditions by calling MoDOT at 888-275-6636.
