Driving conditions in Oregon have been dangerous during the past several days, from the local side roads to the steep mountain passes.

 

Oregon Department of Transportation officials say it's best to stay home if possible when the roads are really slick and visibility is poor.  O-DOT's Peter Murphy says if you must travel, leave earlier.

 

"What i'd like to emphasize is giving yourself alittle more time is the solution to your "hurry up - let's get there mindset" As americans we want to get there right away - and we have to fight the urge (to hurry) and then if we wait until the last minute to go we find ourselves driving too fast and up against the bumper of the guy in front of you - and we just have to  plan in advance and leave enough room between you and the guy in front of you."

 

To give you an idea of how dangerous the roads have been lately, on Sunday State Police reponded to about 30 crashes and "slide offs" just in Central Oregon.  ODOT's Peter Murphy was a recent guest on 11-10 KBND's Your Town.
