Use Caution Today in Inclement Weather

The Loudoun County Sheriffs Office reminds motorists to use caution in light of today's inclement weather. The agency is currently responding to a number of property damage crashes and disabled vehicles throughout the county. 
Many vehicles are having difficulty traveling on the roadways as conditions are hazardous.  
Emergency personnel remind motorists to keep a safe distance of at least five seconds behind other vehicles as well as trucks that are plowing the road. Do not pass a snowplow or spreader unless it is absolutely necessary. Treat these as you would emergency response vehicles. 

There have been a few cases where traffic lights are malfunctioning or are without power. An intersection where the traffic signals are off due to power failure must be treated as a four-way stop.  
Most importantly, drive smart.
