It's been a bad week for traveling in Maine, with lots of slides off the road and into other vehicles.

State Police have shared some of the photos on their Twitter account. No one was seriously hurt in these accidents, but they're good reminders to use caution when the weather gets bad. Slow down and give plenty of room between you and the car in front of you. And during really bad weather, like we've had over the past few days, it's best to stay home, if you possibly can.

If you have to head out today, take a fully charged cell phone, the number to your road service provider or a tow truck company, and the local police. In addition, it's a good idea to have some bottled water, snacks, and extra pairs of dry socks and gloves  in case you go off the road and are stuck there for a while.

Stay safe today!
