Inspect your vehicle: Check your tires and fluids regularly. Keep your windows, mirrors, and lights clean, and your wipers working well. Make sure you have a good ice scraper / snow brush.
Eliminate any non-essential power drains on the battery: It takes extra power in the winter to start a vehicle.
Keep your fuel tanks full: If you are stuck in snow or traffic, you may need to keep your vehicle running for long periods of time in cold temperatures.
Slow Down: The speed limit may be legal, but that does not mean it is a safe speed on snow covered icy roads.
Watch for signs of ice: If it’s colder than 32 degrees, be on the lookout for ice. Ice on the windshield means ice on the road. Look for spray coming up from other vehicles. If spray is coming off the tires, it’s likely that the roads are wet. If there is no spray, the road is likely ice covered.
Keep a safe following distance: Increase your spacing with surrounding vehicles. Don’t travel as part of a pack.
Don’t stop on the shoulder of the road: In low visibility conditions such as snow, other vehicles may mistake your position for being on the road, and as a result, rear-end your vehicle.
Use extra caution when approaching bridges and overpasses: Bridges and highway overpasses usually freeze first. Black ice is common in these areas.
Drive on clean and clear paths and roadways: Prevent yourself from getting stuck in deeper than expected snow.
Always travel with the proper supplies to keep you safe: Bring extra winter clothing, blankets, food, and water.
