- To avoid getting your car towed or plowed in, review the parking restrictions and plowing routes for your city. You may need to move your car.
- If you must drive, clear the snow off of your windshield, windows, mirrors, headlights and brake lights (no one can see covered brake lights!).
- Make sure your wipers and headlights are turned on.
- Be patient – don’t rush! Remember, everyone else will be running late, too.
- Drive for the conditions. Go well below the speed limit – ice, heavy snow, traffic and poor visibility will require longer following and stopping distances (allow at least 8 to 10 seconds for stopping).
- If you do come across a snow plow or sand truck, drive slowly and give them the right of way.
- Leave plenty of room for stopping (at least 150 ft.) and pay attention to the snow plow.
- Snow plows and sand trucks may stop, back up or turn around suddenly.
