Winter driving safety begins even before you leave the driveway.

Don’t be that igloo on wheels.

Clear ice and snow from all exterior windows and mirrors before you start your trip.

Your AC is also a dehumidifier—use it to clear foggy windows for better visibility.

Roadway speed limits are set for ideal driving conditions so please take into consideration snow packed or icy surfaces when operating in winter. Reduce your speed and allow some extra time tio get where you are headed safely!!
