WATERBURY, Vt. - Motorists are still being urged to use caution on roads.

A press release says state and local crews are out and making headway, but windy conditions are making road conditions unpredictable.

Anyone who needs to travel should allow extra time to reach their destination, drive slowly, and leave plenty of room between their vehicle and the vehicle in front of them. Drivers are also urged to clear snow from their car.

If you become stuck, The Vermont Division of Emergency Management and Homeland Security says to clear snow from the tailpipe to prevent carbon monoxide from entering the car. Drivers are also instructed to wait with their car for rescue crews.

Vermonters are also urged to check up on their neighbors and to not overdo it when clearing snow.
