(HealthDay News) -- Icy, wet and slippery winter roads pose serious driving hazards, but some preparation before you leave can help you stay safe.
The Indiana Department of Transportation offers these suggestions:
- Check driving conditions before you leave, remembering to drive slow and easy in bad weather. Or simply skip the trip altogether.
- Make sure any snow that has accumulated on your car's windows, windshields, lights, signals and brake lights has been completely cleared.
- Inspect your car's lights, belts, fluids, wiper blades, tires and hoses to make sure everything is in good working order.
- Leave extra early so you have additional time to reach your destination.
