Winter Weather driving tips

With a winter storm heading toward Kansas, you can expect roads to be a bit of a mess.

So, how can you stay safe when driving in winter weather?

If you must drive while the weather is bad, the biggest thing is to be prepared. You can drive through almost any kind of weather as long as you plan ahead and have everything you need.

Even before you get in the car, make sure your tires and windshield wipers are in good repair.

If there is snow on your car, be sure you clear ALL of it away before you start driving.

Give yourself plenty of extra time to clear off your car and to get to your destination.

If you do start to spin out or crash, do your best to get your vehicle out of the way of other vehicles.

Also, be patient with snow plows and large trucks.

In Kansas, you can dial *47 for roadside assistance or 911 if you have an emergency.
