... This is winter weather preparedness week...

When a snow or ice storm is expected to affect any part of your
travel Route... here is an important question to ask yourself: do I
really need to make this trip? If the answer is no... then dont go.
Keep in mind that the weather may be okay in your town... but
hazardous winter driving conditions could exist only a few miles
away.

If you must travel out of town and dangerous winter weather
conditions are expected along any part of your Route... make sure
your Gas Tank is full and you have a complete winter emergency kit
in your vehicle before departing. Be sure to tell your family or
friends where you are going... the roads you will be taking... and
your time of arrival.

Do not panic if you become stranded on the Road during a winter
storm. Call someone on your cell phone and let them know you are
stranded. Do not try to walk to safety; stay in your vehicle. Attach
a cloth to your car antenna or window to indicate you need help.
Turn on the dome light and flashers to make your vehicle more
noticeable.

The Department of Transportation also reminds you to be on the
lookout for snow plows this winter. If the plow is coming toward
you... allow plenty of room for it to pass. If you approach a
snowplow from the rear... pass with care... and only when you can see
the Road ahead of the plow.
