Here are a few ways to stay safe on the road during cold, wet or snow days.

If you're heading to work or school, you'll want to be careful as the roadways will be wet.

Here are some tips on how to stay safe on the roads:
  • Be sure to leave some distance between you and other drivers.


  • If you have to drive over bridges and overpasses, keep in mind that they could have ice on them.


  • Check your thermometer inside your car. If it's 31 degrees or lower, the roads may have ice on them.

  • Make sure your windshield wipers are working before hitting the road.


  • And most importantly slow down.
