The first winter snowfall is the perfect time to review winter driving safety tips.
"You know you're a Minnesotan if you carry jumper cables in your car and figure it's not worth it to take them out of your trunk just for summer." ~Ed Fischer, You Know You're A Minnesotan
Those of us who have lived here for a while may believe we know the skills we need for Minnesota winter driving safety.
However when we get out on the highway, after even a light snowfall, it sometimes seems as if we need to learn to drive all over again.
Driving in winter weather -- snow, ice, wet and cold -- creates a great challenge for vehicles and drivers.
In ordinary driving condition we are used to reacting to the road situations. Winter driving safety requires us to anticipate an unsafe situation and be able to avoid it.
Check driving conditions before you head out for your winter vacation.
This is what things can look like on a snowy day in our East Saint Paul neighborhood!
