While it may not yet look like winter, it IS time for winter driving.
Highway Patrol Sgt. Mike McCloud says when the temperatures are near freezing, roadway traction can become uneven.
That was true for at least three accidents Tuesday morning.
Three vehicles lost control on the Burlington Bridge along Highway 2.
In one case at 6:30, a pickup rolled and one hour later two vehicles collided while one was passing another.
Just west of Berthold, four occupants were scrambling to get out of a pickup that had rolled over after sliding on the Berthold Bridge when a second vehicle slid on the bridge and hit their pickup.
Two of the four were injured.
Sgt. McCloud says bridges tend to become icy earlier in the year than the roadway.
He says it's important to slow down, buckle up and avoid using cruise control in the winter time.
