Health Tip: Prepare Before You Drive in Winter

Icy, wet and slippery winter roads pose serious driving hazards, but some preparation before you leave can help you stay safe.

The Indiana Department of Transportation offers these suggestions:

  • Check driving conditions before you leave, remembering to drive slow and easy in bad weather. Or simply skip the trip altogether.
  • Make sure any snow that has accumulated on your car’s windows, windshields, lights, signals and brake lights has been completely cleared.
  • Inspect your car’s lights, belts, fluids, wiper blades, tires and hoses to make sure everything is in good working order.
  • Leave extra early so you have additional time to reach your destination.
