Driving in Icy Conditions
Residents who are driving vehicles should take steps to protect themselves, including:
Give themselves extra stopping distance. Wet conditions means it takes longer for vehicles to come to a complete stop.
Ensure windshield wipers are in good working condition before heading out on the road. When conditions are wet or dark, be sure to use headlights.
Never use high beams in urban areas. Highway overpasses and bridges pose the highest risk of icing.
Take extra precautions when driving over them.
Slow down. Rain, sleet and snow can limit visibility, giving drivers less time to recognize danger.
Slowing down provides extra time to adjust to changing conditions.
