Brrr! It’s cold out there! That means it’s time to review some winter weather driving tips. Idaho’s diverse geography can make winter driving a challenge. However, by taking preventative steps, you may be able to avoid a serious car accident this winter.
The Idaho Transportation Department suggests that you make sure your car is properly maintained and equipped for the demands of winter driving. To do this, you should first complete a pre-winter vehicle inspection. This inspection should cover tires, brakes, windshield wipers, and fluid levels. You should also pack essential emergency items in your car. You should pack a survival kit that includes flashlights, blankets, medications, water, and non-perishable food. If you have a young child, you should add necessary infant-care items to your kit.
Drivers should always use caution before heading out in winter storms. You should call 5-1-1 or check Idaho’s 511 Traveler Services website before traveling. This service provides the latest reports on highway and weather conditions. If the conditions sound too hazardous, you should postpone your travel plans until the weather clears up.
