Driving Safety Tips For Snowy Conditions

The first couple of snowstorms of the season provide an opportunity to review some safe-driving tips. INDOT leaders say if you must venture out, first fully clear off your front and rear windshields and side mirrors. Choose direct routes instead of longer trips on higher-speed roads and highways.
If you see a snow squall ahead, immediately take your foot off the gas and turn off cruise control, especially on high-speed highways. Use your low-beam lights and increase following distance… and if you need to stop, try to exit or turn off the main highway. If you stop on the shoulders, pull as far away from the travel lanes as possible.
