(IDAHO FALLS) – Slick roads and holiday travelers always make a dangerous combination this time of year.
Officials have already reported several slide-offs in the past few days.
The Idaho State Police will be monitoring roadways in full force this week. They’re urging drivers to give themselves a little extra travel time to avoid the risk of getting into an accident.
They also encourage motorists to immediately report impaired drivers to local dispatchers by calling *ISP (Star-477) from any cell phone in Idaho.
