INSTALL GOOD WINTER TIRES
Make sure the tires have adequate tread. All-weather radials are usually adequate for most winter conditions. Keep a windshield scraper and small broom for ice and snow removal. Maintain at least a half a tank of gas during the winter season. Plan long trips carefully. Listen to the radio or call the State Police for the latest report of road and weather conditions. Always travel during daylight and, if possible, take at least one other person. If you must go out during a winter storm, use public transportation. Dress warmly. Wear layers of loose-fitting clothing, layered, lightweight clothing. Carry food and water. Store a supply of high energy “munchies” and several bottles of water. Contact your local emergency management office or American Red Cross chapter for more information on winter driving.
