Be prepared in case your car gets stuck in winter weather. And for heaven's sake, girlfriend, bring a pair of warm leggings!
Winter driving presents all sorts of safety issues for drivers. This includes watching for "black ice," driving in rain, fog and snow.
The most important piece of advice here is to SLOW DOWN. It is very easy to lose control of your vehicle on ice, snow or water, and traveling at high speeds will increase the odds of a bad outcome in such situations.
Black ice accumulates on bridges. You should expect it. When driving in fog, use only your low beam lights. NEVER use high beams as the light will reflect back in your eyes from the fog.
Be prepared to be stuck in the car. That means having some food snacks, bottled water, a coat and perhaps even a blanket for survival.
