Before You Drive in the Cold

Follow these tips to help you stay safer when driving in winter weather:

  • Keep an ice scraper and a small broom in your car to remove snow and ice from the windshield and windows. Don't use the scraper or broom on your car's painted surfaces.
  • If you see snow, take it slow. The same goes for ice, fog and other forms of precipitation. Driving slowly makes it easier to maneuver and stop when necessary.
  • Accelerate slowly, increase following distances and approach potentially icy bridges and overpasses with extra caution.
  • Brake earlier than is usually necessary and apply the brakes gently to gauge their traction.
  • Be prepared in case you get stranded. Carry emergency supplies, such as blankets, nonperishable food, water, a flashlight and road flares.
