During severe storm conditions, motorists are encouraged to stay off the roads as much as possible. Those who must drive, should make sure their vehicle equipment, such as brake lights and wipers, are working properly. Proper tire tread depth and inflation is also important in ensuring good traction on wet roads. Be sure to fill up your vehicle’s gas tank early to avoid long lines.
