The first and best strategy for dealing with adverse weather conditions is simply not to deal with them in the first place. Your best defense against inclement weather is avoidance. Nothing is worth risking your life if the conditions present an immediate danger to people on the roads. Do not drive if there is a risk that you’ll be caught in severe snow or on icy roads. However, if you must travel, please be careful and allow plenty of time to get where you are going.
