The snow, ice and freezing rain can make driving treacherous. If you have to drive in winter weather, please:
- BE PREPARED. The American Automobile Association recommends that you have your car inspected. Make sure your tires are correctly inflated and that you have all-weather or snow tires on your car. Drive with at least a half tank of gas. Clear off ice and snow from your windows, making sure your visibility isn’t impaired.
- Once you’re on the road, REDUCE YOUR SPEED. Allow more stopping distance between you and the car in front of you.
SHOULD YOU GET INTO AN ACCIDENT:
- Stop your vehicle
- Exchange information with the other driver.
- Contact the police
- Seek Medical attention.
- Take photos and get names and contact information from witnesses.

And remember, in winter weather:
If in doubt, don’t go out!
