Slow down on slippery roads.

The Chisago County Sheriff’s Office is reminding motorists to slow down this winter driving season, especially near squad cars that are conducting traffic stops.

Recently, a deputy’s squad was struck after he finished conducting a traffic stop near Olinda Trail and 270th Street in Chisago County.

He had just finished the stop and had gotten back into his vehicle when a motorist traveling too fast for the conditions lost control of the vehicle and slammed into the deputy’s cruiser.

The deputy was unharmed, but the vehicle sustained $5,500 worth of damage.
