Accumulated snow combined with below average temperatures will ensure that much of Indiana will remain blanketed in white this Christmas holiday. With a chance of winter weather forecast on Christmas Eve, the Indiana Department of Transportation stands ready to plow and treat highways ahead of the holiday traffic. Yellow plow trucks are deployed ahead of predicted winter weather to make state highways as safe as possible, but winter driving safety is a partnership where motorists play an equally important role.
As Hoosiers gather for Christmas and New Year’s parties, INDOT and the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute urge motorists to celebrate responsibly. Law enforcement agencies will be out in force patrolling for impaired drivers.
