Health Tip: Drive Safely During a Snow Storm

(HealthDay News) -- If you don't have to drive while it's snowing, don't.

But if you must be on the road, the National Weather Service suggests:

  • Slow down. Roads may be slippery, even if they do not look wet.

  • Clean all snow and ice off your car before starting a trip.

  • Let someone know where you are going and what route you will take.

  • Fully charge your cell phone before leaving home.

  • Keep an emergency kit in the car.

  • If you skid, ease your foot off the gas and turn your wheel in the direction you want the front of the car to go. If you have an anti-lock braking system, apply steady pressure to the brake. Never pump the brake on an ABS vehicle.

  • If you are having trouble seeing, pull over until visibility improves.
