During the winter months, the county would like to remind residents of some important safety considerations for motorists to take, in order to make their travel as safe as possible.
Motorists are encouraged to equip their vehicles with chains and/or snow tires and carry a container of sand and a shovel in their vehicle. Barrels of sand for public use are placed at locations that historically become icy and slick during storms, including:
• San Ildefonso South at both ends of the guardrail;
• North Mesa Road east of the roundabout;
