  1. According to the Oregon State Department of Transportation, in cold weather, you should slow down as you approach a bridge or overpass. Bridges and overpasses loose heat more quickly than other road surfaces and can become icy and dangerous. If you realize you're driving over an icy bridge or overpass, do not slam on your breaks, or you could loose control of the car.
