It is National Winter Preparedness week and the National Weather Service is promoting driving safety in winter conditions after a couple consecutive mild winters.
 
Chris Miller says they use the week before Thanksgiving to promote their messages because the holiday travel season traditionally really picks up this time of the year.
 
 
After two consecutive mild winters, Miller says the push this year is for drivers to slow down and arrive safely as the forecast is calling for a return to wet and cold conditions on the roads.
 
 
Those who drive in a four-by-four vehicle or big trucks often times will be more aggressive but Miller says while they can move along fine in bad weather, the issue is always stopping and if you are too close to someone who loses control or you lose control in that vehicle, you could be putting yourself and someone else in harms way.
