Snow, ice, and extreme cold can make driving treacherous. Prior to the storm make sure your car is ready for the season with a tune-up, snow tires or tires with good tread, a charged battery and sufficient antifreeze. It is also important to have the following supplies in your vehicle.

If you must travel in bad weather, drive slowly and let someone know your route and anticipated arrival time.
