ITD launches new winter safety campaign

The Idaho Transportation Department is starting a new, annual campaign that will help drivers stay safe during the winter months.

The "ITD Winter Safety Campaign" offers information via Facebook, Twitter and press releases that helps drivers safely arrive at their destinations.

"Short videos will present information on how to use Idaho's 511 Traveler Services system, how to safely share the road with snowplows, maintain your vehicle during the winter months and drive safely in winter conditions," said Adam Rush, the transportation department's public involvement coordinator. "New videos will be posted to Facebook and Twitter, approximately every other week."

The first video, which offers tips on vehicle maintenance, can be viewed at:

The winter safety campaign helps drivers plan and prepare for challenging driving conditions by providing them with helpful information. This includes webpage links to neighboring states' 511 traveler information for drivers who are traveling to Oregon, Washington, Montana, Nevada, Utah or Wyoming.

Those with questions about the safety campaign can contact Adam Rush at or by phone at (208) 334-8119.
