Severe weather conditions can significantly increase the risk of a dangerous situation for you, your passengers, and other drivers. When driving in conditions that involve snow, rain, or strong wind, it is important to reduce driving distractions. Turn the radio down, turn off or stow away your phone to keep your attention fully on the road. Better yet, do not drive and stay off the road until the weather clears up.
