MDOT prepares Ole Miss, Oxford for winter weather

The Mississippi Department of Transportation (MDOT) will be on the campus of the University of Mississippi for a winter weather college tour.

The event will take place on Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the Student Union.

One of the best ways to stay safe is to make preparations before winter weather conditions occur. MDOT will provide information about safe driving tips, ways to prepare your vehicle for winter and ideas on how to make an emergency kit for your car.

In addition to this valuable information, MDOT will have giveaways that can benefit you this season. There will also be a chance to win a door prize.

Winter weather has been here, and MDOT wants everyone to be prepared. MDOT invites all Ole Miss students and community residents to come out to the Student Union on Wednesday to learn how to better survive winter weather driving.
