Before driving in winter weather, make sure to check your vehicle’s battery, brakes, tires, lights, wipers, oil and radiator fluid/hoses. In addition, pack emergency supplies, including tire chains, in your vehicle. Drivers who get stuck in snow or ice should not abandon their vehicles in an area that would block traffic, as those vehicles will be towed.
