Whenever winter weather arrives, remember this simple message: Get to where you need to be before the weather gets bad! In other words, stay off the roads when it snows!
- Most winter storm deaths result from vehicle or other transportation accidents caused by ice and snow.
- Avoid driving when conditions include sleet, freezing rain or drizzle, snow or dense fog.
- Serious conditions are often underestimated and they make driving, and even walking outside, very hazardous.
Think about, explore and plan for alternate routes now:
