Plan & Prepare for Winter Driving
Tips
Plan
Make sure your vehicle is equipped with jumper cables, road flares, a shovel, windshield scraper, tow rope, and a winter survival kit.

Prepare
Test your anti-freeze, battery, brakes, exhaust and lights. Never travel with less than a half tank of gas.

Pay Attention
Listen to weather forecasts, road reports, and storm warnings.

Notify Others
When roads are in poor driving condition, always tell someone where you are going and the route, then report a safe arrival.

Cut the Cruise
Never use cruise control when roads are slippery. It can reduce your control of the vehicle if your tires begin to slip or skid.

Current road conditions can be found online or by calling the 24-hour Statewide Road Condition Information Numbers: 1 (800) 542-0220.
