Winter Travel Tips

  • Make sure your car is in good operating condition before using it in extreme cold.

  • Keep condensation (water) out of your gas tank by keeping the tank as full as possible.

  • Maintain a storm kit in your car with such items as a cell phone and charger; blankets; extra clothing; jumper cables; a flashlight; extra batteries; high-calorie, non-perishable food; and matches or a lighter.

  • Plan your trip carefully. If cold, snowy, or icy conditions exceed your ability or your car's ability, don't travel. If you must travel be cautious.

  • Tell someone about your travel plans.

  • Never leave the motor running in a vehicle parked in an enclosed or partially enclosed space, such as a garage.
