Winter Weather Preparedness Week

It’s yet to be a problem, but snow and ice will eventually fall. And being ready is the key.

We’ve reached the mid-point of November. This is Winter Preparedness Week. Now’s the time to prepare. according to Illinois State Trooper Tracy Lillard ...

Trooper Lillard also recommends having a winter survival kit in your vehicle. Water, extra clothing, dry snow boots, sand or kitty litter, a shovel, and booster cables can be helpful. A metal can and some matches (to melt snow if necessary), along with some extra windshield washer fluid are other items recommended.

Lillard also suggests motorists slow down. It's the drivers traveling too fast for conditions that gets them into trouble.
