State Police warn motorists about wintery weather December 17
"If you go up like Highway 58 you may see a sign that says chains required, at that point you have to either carry chains or have some kind of traction device," said Sgt. Alan Gilbert with Oregon State Police. He said drivers can be fined if they don't carry traction devices. He also cautioned drivers to slow down, regardless of the speed limit. "If the speed limit is 45 and you are going 45 and you crash you can still be cited for going faster than conditions allow."
