Things To Check Before Taking The Wheel:
Check your car's antifreeze, oil, battery, defroster, heater, wipers, washer fluid and level.

Inspect the tires to be sure there is adequate tread, check air pressure to ensure proper inflation. Use radials or chains during snow emergencies.

If you must travel, prepare to leave early and allow plenty of time to reach your destination.

And Finally.
Take time to remove all ice and snow from your car, concentrating on the windows, wipers, mirrors and lights. To reduce the chance of snow flying off your vehicle while driving, remove snow and ice from the front grill, hood and roof. Good visibility is essential for a safe journey. You need to see and be seen by others.
