Winter Driving Tips

February 17, 2017

While many of us here in Rhode Island and Massachusetts have lived in a snowy climate our whole lives, it seems sometimes many people tend to forget the skills and level of caution needed to drive in dangerous winter weather conditions.

Winter driving conditions can turn treacherous in an instant. Snow, ice, poor visibility, and extreme cold can disable your vehicle or make roads impassable.

Here are some reminders that will help keep you and your family safe when traveling throughout Southern New England this winter season.

The Rhode Island State Police in correlation with the Rhode Island Department of Public Safety have prepared a list of tips on the state police website.
