With more vehicles back on the roads police are urging drivers to prepare for winter hazards.
Each year, black ice warnings are issued.
But its a message police will continue to share in an effort to prevent potential tragedies.
In 2017, northern police were forced to issue 29 separate safety messages within the first month of winter, after a spike in road deaths that year.
This year, the state's death toll has already reached 17, four more than this time last year, despite a reduction in traffic due to COVID-19 restrictions.
Road Safety Advisory Council chairman Garry Bailey said as restrictions continued to ease, drivers should apply the same social distancing rules when on the road.
"We should stay three seconds behind the vehicle in front, and extend that when driving conditions are more challenging in winter," he said.
"Tasmanians have been brilliant at looking after each other and obeying the rules throughout the pandemic, and we should apply that same care and concern for one another when we get behind the wheel.
"Everyone in policing, emergency services and road safety would love to be able to say at the end of the year, thank you for obeying the road rules."

"If a car is left out overnight, it is important to allow time to clean the windows before you have to drive.
"You should always drive to the conditions, so plan ahead and give yourself extra time to get to your destination and slow down in case of road hazards like snow or ice."
