Use caution when driving on icy roads


On the mornings of Thursday, Dec. 7 and Friday, Dec. 8, North Whidbey Fire and Rescue responded to a total of eight auto accidents all attributed to ice on the roads. Fortunately, no serious injuries were reported from those accidents.

With the winter months upon us, North Whidbey Fire would like to remind you of the dangers of black ice. Indicators of black ice are when you can see frost on your windshield or frost on the grass. Please allow yourself additional time to get to your destination. Additionally, reduce speeds and provide for more space between vehicles to allow for greater stopping distance.
