Be Prepared and Stay Safe this Winter

With all the warm weather, most people aren’t thinking about winter weather and snowy roads, but MoDOT is.
MoDOT has approximately 3,400 employees ready to fight winter weather across the state. Each winter storm is different, and tools, materials, and practices are adjusted accordingly.
During major storms, all available employees work 12-hour shifts on snow removal operations. Roads are prioritized based on traffic volume, and interstate highways are always treated first. Lower-volume roads will likely remain somewhat snow-covered until higher-volume roads are mostly clear.
If you ever find yourself on the road in a snowstorm, remember that snowplows need to have room to work. Never pass a snowplow, and stay back at least six car lengths.
Remember, every driver can help keep Missouri roads safe by committing four simple actions: buckle up, put the phone down, slow down, and never drive while impaired.
Learn more about safe winter driving tips on MoDOT’s website.

Another Holiday Scam, this Caller Claims to be from Social Security

It’s a sad state of affairs that we have to post two stories in a row about the scams that are going around in our area. FM 92 News has learned of yet another scam involving the Social Security Office.

Social Security will NEVER call you regarding your account in any way. Social Security contacts you by mail. Don’t give anyone claiming to be from Social Security ANY of your information – the real Social Security Office already knows your information and will NOT call you regarding any aspect of your account.
