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
