Crossing Center-Line On The Parks

Comments Off

It’s winter again. The Alaska Dept. of Transportation budget is being slashed with recent budget problems. Alaskans driving on the Parks Highway are thus well-advised to exercise extreme caution. On-coming motorists are crossing the center-line and taking out folks head-on. Always leave your headlights lit. Always buckle up. Always clean your windshield and headlights. Buy Bridgestone Blizzak or Michelin X-Ice winter snow tires. Consider driving a bigger vehicle – and avoiding “ice fog colored cars” if you can help it. Most importantly, just slow down. Nothing is worth the carnage we are again seeing on the Parks Highway. I wish you all well. /s/ Ward Merdes
