A winter driving alert remains in effect in Rock County. Poor driving conditions and a fatal car accident yesterday led the Rock County Sheriff's Department to issue the alert. It includes tips to stay safe that are good for drivers cross the Stateline to remember.
Keep emergency supplies like a flashlight, blankets and jumper cables in your car. It's also good to leave home with a full tank of gas so you can keep warm while waiting for help to arrive. Give yourself plenty of extra travel time and don't forget your cell phone.
