All motorists are reminded of these important winter weather driving safety tips:

  • Reevaluate the necessity of a trip during a winter storm
  • If you MUST travel, leave early, reduce speed, have a fully charged cell phone as well as a winter emergency travel kit
  • Remember that 4×4 or All Wheel Drive (AWD) vehicles may allow a driver to drive faster in snow and ice, but these vehicles DO NOT STOP ANY FASTER than a 2 wheel drive vehicle
  • Reduce speed and increase following distance
  • Wear Seatbelts
  • If involved in a property damage crash, the participants should, if possible, move their vehicles off the road to a safe place and exchange information
