Be Prepared for Winter Driving


Protect yourself and your passengers. Allow extra time to reach your destination during inclement weather. It takes only one unprepared or careless driver to slow or stop traffic.

Practice the following:
  • Drive for conditions slower speeds, slower acceleration.
  • Check to see if you have traction tires.
  • Know what the traction advisories mean.
  • Watch a video to learn how to install tire chains.
  • Do not use cruise control.
  • Four-wheel and all-wheel vehicles do not stop or steer better on ice.
  • Leave extra room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Slow down when approaching intersections, offramps, bridges, or shady spots.
  • If you find yourself behind a snowplow, slow down and give the plow a little extra room.
  • Slow down and be extra cautious near the chain-up and removal areas. There are often people out of their vehicles.
  • Keep your fuel tank full don't let it fall below half a tank on winter trips.
  • Program your radio for traffic reports and emergency messages (for WSDOT radio: 530 and 1610 AM).
