Over 100 million Americans will travel this holiday season. The Saginaw County Road Commission wants to keep everyone safe and prepared while on the road. Here are a few tips for traveling around the holidays:

1. Plan ahead: Make sure your vehicle is in good shape to travel, check the weather before leaving and pack your windshield scraper!
2. Stay fresh and alert : Make sure you are well-rested before your drive, and designate a second driver if needed.
3. Mind your speed: Give the cars around you enough space to provide a buffer while you drive.
4. Drive defensively: Let impatient and aggressive drivers pass you. Your safety is more important than a bout of road rage.
5. Don’t drive impaired: If you plan on drinking, don’t get behind the wheel. Choose a designated driver.
6. Avoid distractions: Do not text and drive. If you need to send a message, find a safe place to stop, then send the message.

Buckle Up EVERY TIME!

Safety is essential this holiday season, on and off the road. Make sure children are always properly buckled in the back seat in a car seat, booster seat or seat belt, whichever is appropriate for their weight, height and age.

Road safety is our top priority. The Saginaw County Road Commission is here to make sure Michigan residents have safe roads to travel this winter. We are paving the way for you!

ALL ROADS WILL BE CLEARED IN THE FOLLOWING LEVEL OF PRIORITY:
Emergency Routes – These are mutually agreed upon routes for emergency vehicles throughout the county.
Primary Roads – These can generally be identified by roads that have line striping.
High‐Priority Local Roads – These are the local roads where schools and fire stations are located.
High‐Volume Local Roads – These are section line roads that, through traffic count reports, need to be cleared as soon as possible.
Local Roads – These are section line roads throughout the county that may be surfaced with gravel, asphalt or concrete.
Subdivision Roads – These are generally the last roads to be plowed and can take up to two to three days after a snow event.

Happy Happy Monday Facebook peeps!

Please respect our flaggers' traffic control directions when we are working within a particular mile or half-mile. If your residence is within the closed area, you will be allowed to go through, but other traffic will be asked to go around. This process will help us to complete each mile much more efficiently and minimize any unfortunate mishaps.
