Ice and Snow Driving Tips

The snow hit Nevada County Friday just after 4:00 PM and it wasn’t long after that traffic started to get a little squirrelly.
As a result a number of vehicles were stranded on the side of the road and cars slipped and slid as they tried to navigate the streets without 4 wheel drive or chains.
CHP Officer Greg Tassone has some tips for driving in the snow and also dispelling some myths.
