Great Tips for Driving on Washington Winter Roads
The WSDOT website has some good winter driving tips before you head out this weekend traveling over the mountain passes. Make sure you check the conditions before you leave. I put the links at each mountain pass in this article to make it easy for you. Make sure you have good traction tires installed and chains are carried somewhere in your car. Remember you only don't need chains if you have all wheel drive otherwise you need to at least have them inside your car. Also, make sure to leave plenty of room in front of you for stopping on slick roads and drive for the conditions. Click here for a good checklist from WSDOT.
