With a weekend forecast that shows snow and ice heading towards Marion County, safe driving may be more important than ever. Pella Police Lt. John Van Haaften says that it’s very important to take the necessary precautions before and during your drive this winter. Van Haaften adds that you should make sure there is enough time allotted to get to your destination. He says that it’s a good idea to slow down, wear your seat-belt and stay alert behind the wheel because there is always the possibility of black ice that may not be visible.
