DOT offers storm travel tips
ALBANY, N.Y. -- The state Department of Transportation continues to prepare for the Sandy's arrival.
More than 400 workers as well as various types of equipment are ready to be deployed should they be needed.
The DOT also has following safety tips for people hitting the roads.
Don't try to drive through water covering a road or bridge. It only takes two inches of moving water to carry a vehicle away. If traffic signals are out because of a loss of power, treat them as four-way stop signs. And the DOT also says to heed all travel warnings and stay off the roads if travel becomes dangerous.
