As a result of the snow plowing and salting works of the Highways, the roads were kept open for transportation. Due to snowfall, drivers had to travel slowly with their vehicles. Traffic cops waiting in front of Bolu Mountain Tunnel warned vehicles that made speeds to reduce their speed by making hand signals. Bolu Regional Traffic Directorate officials made the following warning by asking drivers to avoid excessive speed and close follow-up due to snowfall and icing:
“It is necessary to be more careful when there is snow and ice. It should not be started with vehicles that are not suitable for winter conditions. When there is snow, speed also reduces the vehicle's dominance. Accidents due to speed cause casualties, injuries and material damage, as well as hinder transportation on the roads. Therefore, attention should be paid to avoid excessive speed and close follow-up. ”
