Posted at 4:32 PM, Oct 25, 2016

State workers have already began planning for the winter snow and how to make roads safe for drivers.

A group of Tennessee Department Of Transportation snow plow drivers worked with simulators Tuesday to help freshen up their skills.

The machine takes drivers through real life situations on the roads.

Leaders said workers can never have too much training.

There are 248 snow plows that operate during ice and snow in Middle Tennessee.
