The Oregon Department of Transportation recently issued a reminder to drivers to be prepared for snowy and icy conditions as they travel through the state. Severe driving conditions are affecting state highways throughout Oregon, and ODOT reminds drivers to use chains or traction devices when necessary, and to drive slowly and carefully.

Chains are required in Oregon whenever winter conditions exist and “Snow Zone” signs are posted. ODOT’s travel information website, www.tripcheck.com, has up-to-date information on road conditions, chain requirements and diagrams on where to place chains on various vehicle combinations.
