As the first snow storm of this winter season approaches West Michigan, the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety would like to provide a couple of reminders:
- Icy and snowy road conditions can be very dangerous and require slower speeds and increased distance between vehicles, regardless if your vehicle is equipped with four wheel drive.
- Cautionary driving is especially important during the first snow of the winter season, as motorists are comfortable with driving on favorable road conditions. As a result, police departments across West Michigan respond to an increased number of vehicle accidents during this transition period.
Residents and visitors to the City are also reminded to observe on-street parking restrictions to assist with snow removal on city streets. On-street parking is not permitted between the hours of 2:00 a.m. and 6:00 a.m. unless otherwise posted.
