[ARCHIVED] Winter Driving Tips

  • Make sure your vehicle is in good working condition.
  • Check your vehicle’s tires to ensure that the air pressure in them is correct and that the tread is at least 1/16”.
  • Plan ahead. Check forecasts and weather conditions before venturing out.
  • Let others know your expected arrival time.
  • Travel at a safe following distance behind other vehicles on the roadway.
  • Only travel at a rate of speed that is acceptable for the road conditions.
  • Stock your vehicle with extra blankets, clothing, water, food, a shovel and flashlight in the event you do get stuck.
  • Keep your cell phone charged and with you in case you need it for an emergency.
  • Should your vehicle get stuck, do not continuously run your vehicle. Only run it long enough to keep warm. Ensure that the exhaust pipe is free from snow to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning.
