Maine Roads That Are Terrifying to Drive on During a Winter Storm
Even though we had a really mild start to the season, the last few days have reminded us that winter has arrived in Maine.
Over the course of just a few days, we have been hit by a snowstorm that basically buried the southern part of the state, got dumped on by heavy snow, and experienced a rain/wind storm.
Weather events like these can quickly turn even the safest roads into something that resembles an episode of Ice Road Truckers. Sometimes, driving these roads can be downright terrifying.
Of course, if you live in an area long enough, you learn what roads to avoid during a snowstorm.
If you are new to our area and aren’t really sure which roads get dangerous, we are here to help.
We’ve put together a list of the some of the Maine roads and streets that get really bad during storms.
Keep in mind that, in some cases, these roads are not that difficult to drive in a storm, but they become dangerous when other drivers are added to the mix.
Maine Roads & Streets To Avoid In A Snowstorm
Sometimes, you cannot avoid taking these roads during a storm. There are times when these roads are the only way to get somewhere you absolutely need to go. In that case, please use caution.
Drive slowly, make sure your vehicle is completely cleaned off, and make sure your headlights are on.
Additionally, never attempt to cross a flooded road. You may think the water is only a few inches deep, but there is a good chance that it could be much deeper.
