As fall fades and winter approaches, it’s a good time to prepare for winter driving conditions. Make certain your vehicle is winterized. This includes checking your antifreeze and tire condition. You might also want to have a winter driving kit in place, with emergency supplies, a shovel, sand, and blankets. When driving, listen to local radio station for road condition updates. Weather might be fine when you leave but deteriorate as you travel. Let someone know when you plan leave and what route you are taking. Also, since road conditions can change quickly be alert to different road conditions and drive accordingly.
