Winter Driving Tips
If you must travel, take public transportation
whenever possible. If you must use a car, take winter driving
seriously. Travel by daylight, and keep others informed of your
Drive with extreme caution; never try to save time by driving
fast or using back-road shortcuts.
Make sure your car has fuel, and is equipped with chains or snow
Keep your car "winterized" with antifreeze. Carry a "winter car
kit" that includes a windshield scraper, flashlight, tow chain
or rope, shovel, tire chains, a blanket, a bag of sand or salt,
a fluorescent distress flag and an emergency flare in case you
are trapped in a winter storm. Keep extra outerwear and
pre-packaged food in the car.
Make sure your windshield wipers are working properly and there
is windshield washer fluid in the car.
If a Blizzard Traps You in Your Car:
Pull of the highway; stay calm and remain in your vehicle where
rescuers are most likely to find you.
Turn on your emergency flashers and hang a distress flag from
the radio antenna or window.
Do not set out on foot unless you can see a building close by
where you know you can take shelter. Be careful; distances are
distorted by blowing snow.
If you run the engine to keep warm, open a window slightly for
ventilation. This will protect you from possible carbon monoxide
poisoning. Periodically clear away snow from the exhaust pipe.
Exercise to maintain body heat (by clapping and moving around)
but avoid over exertion. In extreme could, use road maps, seat
covers and floor mats for insulation. Huddle with passengers and
use your coat as a blanket.
Never let anyone in the car sleep at one time. One person should
look out for the rescue crews.
Be careful not to use up battery power. Balance electrical
energy needs -- the use of lights, heat and radio -- with
At night, turn on the inside dome light, so work crew can spot
Wet Weather Safety Tips:
Slow down - your car needs three times more space to stop on
slick roads. Roads become slick and dangerous after a rainfall,
especially early in the winter season.
Cloudy weather reduces visibility, so use extra caution when
passing other vehicles.
Maintain a distance of six to eight seconds between your vehicle
and the vehicle in
front of you.
