Since it is December and the snow is sure to start flying very soon, be on the look out for flashing green lights because that means to slow down.

Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT) is reminding us that new lights on snow plows and other road maintenance vehicles, will be green this time around. Yellow and white flashing lights, are so last season, green is in!

According to Mlive, the reason for the change in light color is that our eyes will be able to see the green lights easier in a heavy snow storm and hopefully this new color change will help eliminate car vs. plow accidents.
