Traveling During a Storm
If possible, avoid traveling during a storm. One of the worst places you can be is on the roads during a winter storm. Consider the following tips to stay safe:
- Avoid traveling alone
- Fully check and winterize your vehicle before the winter season begins
- Keep your gas tank near full to avoid ice in the tank and fuel lines
- Let someone know your timetable and primary and alternate routes
- Plan your travel and check the latest weather reports to avoid the storm
Too often, winter weather catches people unprepared. Before the storm strikes, make sure your home, farm, office, and vehicles have the supplies you might need. The Georgia Farm Bureau team hopes you have a very safe winter!
