 Winter safety tips:
  • Secondary and neighborhood streets are likely to be slick
  • Turn off your automatic sprinkler systems
  • Stay home if you can. We realize, though, there are people out there just like us (and hospital staff) who need to get to work
  • Drive slowly
  • Give salt trucks plenty of room – stay at least 100 feet behind them so salt won’t get thrown on your car
  • When trucks are plowing, cars should stay behind the last truck in line
  • Plan ahead by getting up and leaving the house earlier
  • Keep at least a three-car distance from the car in front of you
  • Steer and brake more slowly than usual
  • Keep warm shoes and clothes in your car
  • Use extra caution when driving over bridges and overpasses
  • Clear all snow and ice from your vehicle before setting out
  • Remember that POSTED SPEED LIMITS are only to be followed during ideal weather conditions, slow down while driving on snow or ice
  • Watch for downed power lines and trees
  • Proceed carefully through intersections
  • Have a plan if you slide off the road - who are you going to call?
