Winter Travel Safety Tips

Winter in New England can be beautiful (depending on who you ask) but it can also be very dangerous. Here are some tips that you should follow before you head out in the winter weather:

  • Keep your gas tank full to avoid running out of gas and also to prevent ice in the gas tank or fuel lines.
  • If you're traveling to an unfamiliar place, try to avoid traveling alone if at all possible.
  • Let someone know where you’re going, which route you’ll be taking, and what time you expect to arrive.
  • Winterize your car BEFORE bad weather arrives, preferably in the fall to avoid any surprise storms (remember October 2011?) and to beat the rush. Make sure that your tires always have good traction, no matter what the season.
  • Have an auto safety kit in all cars.  Purchase a ready-made kit or make your own.
