I ! Page 8B -- The Glenville Democrat/Pathfinder --Thursday, January 15, 2009 I Manchin Column I From the Governor's Desk: A Weekly Column by Governor Joe Manchin Caution Is Key Iknue Driving WV Roads In Wil00ter If you've ever owned a vehicle, there's a good chance that you can remember how much you pai d for it. In fact, some people may even be able to identify the cost associated with replacement parts and maintenance for that vehicle. With that in mind, there's no one who can tell you the worth of a vehicle's passengers, be- cause they are priceless. Keeping citizens safe while travel- ing West Virginia's highways and byways is a priority for our transpor- tation and public safety officials. Motorists who use our roadways must also take safety measures seriously while driving, especially during in- clement weather. Now that we are in the midst of the winter season. harsh weather and treacherous roads can be common. Following a few simple procedures can help reduce the chances of accidents and will ulti- mately save lives. To help our state's motorists navi- gate our 'oads during the winter months, the West Virginia Depart- ment of Transportation has compiled a list of useful tips aimed to keep our roads as safe as possible. I urge you to pay special attention and follow these winter driving safety tips: Reduce speed, when it snows, use your head not your feet. Slow down for wet, snowy, or icy conditions; when visibility is poor; or when con- ditions are changing or unpredictable. Don't turn your vehicle into an "off- road vehicle" by driving too fast for conditions. Safe travel around snowplows, don't crowd the plow. Snowplows plow far and wide, sometimes very wide The front plow extends several feet in front of the truck and may cross the centerline and shoulders during plow- ing operations. Driving maneuvers, stopping on snow and ice without skidding re- quires extra time and distance. If you have anti-lock brakes, press the pedal down firmly and hold it. If you don't have anti-lock brakes, gently pump the pedal. Either way, give yourself plenty of room to stop. Trip preparedness, before leaving home, find out about the driving con- ditions. Safe drivers know the weather, and they know their limits. If the weather is bad. remember, ice and snow, take it slow, or just don't go. With these tips in mind, please take extra caution while driving. Remem- ber, "Ice and Snow. Take it Slow!"

BrickStreet Sells First Out- Of-State Policy BrickStreet Mutual Insurance an- nounced today that it has written its first out-of-state policy. The policy, which went into effect January 1. cov- ers the employees of a West Virginia- based pipeline company working in the Commonwealth of Virginia. BrickStreet. the leading provider of workers' compensation coverage m West Virginia. has until now been limited to only providing coverage for companies within West Virginia. Starting January 1. BrickStreet is partnering with Argonaut Insurance Company to provide coverage in other states for West Virginia policyhold- ers. The relationship with Argonaut will continue until BrickStreet can independently write in other states, a possibility BrickStreet plans to ex- plore in 2009. The Friedlander company of Charleston is the local agent for the policy. According to BrickStreet President and CEO Gregory A. Burton. "Our underwriters are quoting a number of out-of-state policies and soon BrickStreet will be actively compet- ing to provide West Virginia policy- holders with other states coverage. Still. this is the first and that makes it an important step for our company."
