How can you stay safe while traveling on slick roads?

Have a plan in place. Keep your eyes on the road at all times. Plan your travel and route. It's recommended that you keep at least 9 seconds behind the car in front of you.

Stock your vehicle with essentials. Have an emergency roadside kit that includes:

A fully charged cell phone or charging cord, a flashlight, extra batteries, a blanket, gloves, boots, a shovel, jumper cables, bottled water, an ice scraper, and a first aid kit. You may also want to have kitty litter on hand to help with traction, should you get stuck on ice. You may also want to include a stash of non-perishable snacks.

Always know before you go. Have a plan in place.
