Winter driving can sometimes be a daunting task, especially when conditions are snowy or icy. If road conditions are dangerous consider making alternate travel arrangements.

Follow these steps to help keep yourself safe while driving during the winter months:

  • Create a survival kit for your vehicle including: flashlight, hats & gloves, blanket, booster cables, small shovel, windshield wiper fluid, first aid kit, bottled water
  • Clear all snow and ice from your vehicle (including roof)
  • Give yourself extra travel time

Don’t Forget To Get Your Winter Tires Installed
