River Drive is Dangerous in Snow and Ice

Posted: Updated:

During the winter months with all the snow and ice, one of the most dangerous road to travel on is River Drive, where the road is very close to the Missouri river. One wrong move could end you up in cold water. We talked on the phone with Mike Taylor a wrecker driver for Mccullough's Wrecker Service who has seen his share of cars run into the Missouri.

"Oh yeah, yeah. well typically that's not the first the first one to go in the river," says Taylor.

According to Triple A here are some tips to help you navigate in snowy weather:

      -Keep you gas level at least half full

      -Always look and steer where you intend to go

      -Always where your seat belts

      -Do not power drive up hills

"Slow down, make sure your tires are in good shape, make sure you got your air pressure set right. I mean it all makes a big difference," adds Taylor.

Echoing what many folks have said about driving on River Drive Taylor thinks having guard rails would help to lower the accident rate during the winter months.

"You know you would think they would, yeah you know I really do think that would be a plus," says Taylor.

So this year how do you prevent from ending up in watery trouble? Well always remember to take it slow and remember when you can't see out it might not be safe to go out.
