GRAND RAPIDS, Michigan — MSP WINTER DRIVING REMINDERS | Michigan State Police give tips for driving in the snow, especially this morning. MSP advises to slow down to keep more room between your car and the one in front of you, put your turn signal on sooner to give cars behind you time to react, avoid distractions, and watch out for black ice, especially on bridges, ramps, and overpasses.
