ROCHESTER, Minn. - After months of clear, dry roads, the first rounds of snowfall are causing some slippery driving conditions.
In a video posted on Facebook, the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office is reminding drivers how to be winter drivers.
In the video, a Sergeant gives these tips to drivers: slow down, leave extra space between the car in front, be patient, and know your breaks.
