AAA Says Keep Your Preparation Up

aaa

Winter at its worst may still be coming in Wyoming, where the season has been mild so far. Pam Moen with Triple-A Auto Club cautions drivers from becoming complacent about their safe driving checklists. Her top tips are making sure batteries and tires are ready for winter travel.  She says those are probably the two things that get people in the most trouble during the winter weather. Also make sure that you have all of your lights checked out, and that you’ve got a good set of windshield wipers.  Additionally she says you should be sure to have things like an ice scraper; traction material – sand, salt, or cat litter; a snow shovel; a flashlight and some basic tools; and some warm clothing and blankets. Moen says drivers really need to pay close attention to weather forecasts and road condition reports before leaving on a trip. Moen suggests be sure to taking along water, non-perishable food, a cell phone and a charger for longer trips. In Wyoming, winter road reports are available at 5-1-1 or 1-888-996-7623 as well as the WYDOT website.
