On average, weather-related vehicle crashes kill 6,250 people and injure more than 480,000 each year. Snow or ice can create particularly dangerous driving conditions. Remember to slow down, leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you, and give yourself extra time to reach your destination. Also, make sure that your mobile phone is fully charged—it could become your lifeline if disaster should strike.
The National Weather Service provides a wealth of valuable information about winter safety and preparedness on their website.
