Seems no matter how long we live and drive in the State of Maine we always forget some basic winter driving principles.

This happened this morning and of course Maine State Police it came on the heals of them telling all of us to slow down. In case you forgot too, bridges are colder than the natural ground and therefore freeze and stay icy in cold and rainy conditions.

The Maine DOT also cautions us about the winter rain posting today:

I understand it may feel like I am harping on about this just a bit and yet I think we all agree one of these happening per winter is sufficient. So please be smart and cautious and if you know a inexperienced driver please make sure they know this too.
