It’s harder to control or stop your vehicle on a slick or snow-covered surface. Watch for slowing traffic, snowplows, or vehicles off the road. Reduce your speed, when winter weather arrives.
Watch weather reports and plan accordingly for earlier start times and routes. Carry items in your vehicle to handle common winter driving-related tasks, and supplies you might need in an emergency. A blanket, coat, hat, gloves, handwarmers, and other supplies that can keep you warm, if you have to wait for a tow.
If you are stopped or stalled in wintry weather, stay focused on yourself and your passengers, your car, and your surroundings. Make sure the exhaust pipe is clear of snow, ice or mud.
