- CDOT: Winter Wise & Winter Preparedness
CDOT releases latest episode of the new “Winter Driving in the Wild” series amid Denver’s snowless streak*Andrew Hogle is available for interviews about winter driving preparations and the “Winter Driving in the Wild” video series.
STATEWIDE — Hey, Colorado, where’s winter? CDOT is reminding Colorado drivers that snow will eventually fall, and you should prepare your vehicle now for when it does. As part of its Winter Wise campaign, the agency just released the second installment of the new “Winter Driving in the Wild” video series that addresses winter driving preparedness.
Snow has evaded much of the state so far this season, and Denver is setting marks unseen since before World War II. Denver recently set the latest snowfall record — the previous latest snowfall was Nov. 21 (1934) — and is climbing its consecutive-days-without-
measurable-snow record (currently at 226 days, ranking third all-time). The city’s most days without snow is 235 days, set in 1887.
“This is an unusual start to winter; I’m patiently waiting for snow like everyone else,” said Andrew Hogle, CDOT public information officer. “I’m no meteorologist, but there’s a 100% chance snow will return. Our latest ‘Winter Driving in the Wild’ video is a crucial reminder that Coloradans need to prepare for unpredictable winter weather. You don’t want to get caught in a snowstorm without a safe vehicle, tires and adequate tread. And a quality ice scraper, among other things.”
ABOUT WINTER DRIVING IN THE WILD
“Winter Driving in the Wild” is an educational video series that raises awareness of the laws, preparations and resources for safe and efficient winter driving. The series features the do’s and don’ts of Colorado winter driving through wildlife documentary-style mini-movies. “Winter Driving in the Wild” launches as CDOT prepares for winter travel, and the department hopes the series serves as a humorous and educational reminder of how to stay safe throughout winter.
