With winter approaching, bringing icy roads, gloomy skies and crazy winds, traffic experts are reminding Grand ledge commuters to drive safely. “The average traffic issue will vary with the time of year,” said Chris Blievernicht, a Grand Ledge police lieutenant. Experts say drivers need to calibrate their habits for the changing conditions. “In the beginning of winter, drivers mindsets have to adjust to conditions,” said David Kack, the mobility and public transportation program manager at the Western Transportation Institute. “In the winter time people tend drive too fast for the weather conditions and this causes them to run lights or slide through stop signs,” said Kack.
