SHOSHONE--With the approach of winter weather and challenging driving conditions on Idaho’s highways, the Idaho Transportation Department is hosting a media event to encourage safe driving around snow plows.
The event will be held today, Thursday, Dec. 6 at 216 South Date Street in Shoshone from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m.
A snow plow operator will be available to talk to reporters about the best way to stay safe when encountering the plows, and a plow will be on site to serve as a backdrop.
Each year, the transportation department organizes a winter safety campaign that offers a variety of information and tips on being prepared for winter conditions. This year the campaign is called “Idaho Ready.”
