Inspect Your Tires

Snow is dangerous in itself for travelers, but beneath its surface can lurk debris and ice. Make sure your tires have good treads and are inflated properly. One way to check your tires is to place a penny into a tread. If you can see all of Lincoln, it’s likely time to replace your tires.

Replace Your Wipers

The summer may be over, but sun damage to windshield wipers can greatly impair your winter driving. Be sure to check for any cracks or tears that may cause problems with performance.

Keep an Emergency Bag Handy

The best remedy for the future is planning. Be prepared with an emergency bag, complete with snacks, flares, water, warm blankets, and a battery charger for your cell phone.
