As inclement weather approaches Northeast Texas, TxDOT is asking drivers to stay off icy, snow-filled roads.

They are expecting black ice – ice that is difficult to see – will be a big problem on briges, overpasses and shaded areas.

TxDOT says the best advice is to stay home and off the roadways. However, if motorists absolutely must drive, they recommend the following safe driving tips:

1. Buckle Up

2. Slow down

3. Put down the phone

4. Plan extra time for travel

5. Keep extra distance between cars

6. Watch for maintenance crews
