N.o.yflmber 26:1998 The Washing1 State Patrol c00ffers Page 11 the following c riving tips for holiday travel The recent whether condition across most of Washington's passes reminds us all of the problems associated with winter driving, in particular as you prepare to travel to visit friends and family over this holiday ,season. Here are a few tips to help you and yours make it safely to your deslina- lion. Before leaving home, first con- sider if the trip is necessary. Call to get up to date road and weather information. For pass conditions you may call 206-DOT-HIWY. [206- 368-4499 } if you are in the greater Seattle area, or toll-free state wide at 1-888-SNO-INFO [ 1-888-766- 4636]. Make sure your vehicle is in good condition. Check the fluid levels including a full tank of gas. Use an antifreeze type washer fluid. Your tires should meet approved traction tire requirements and be in good condition. Notify those you are going to see when you depart, and your expected arrival time. Inform them if you are de- layed. Plan to leave early, allow- ing yourself extra time for unex- pected weather conditions. Allow your vehicle to properly warm up to avoid poor cold engine perfor- mances, or having it stall. This will also ensure your windows are corn pletely defrosted. You may need chains. Do not hesitate to chain up when condi- tions first warrant--you do not want to become stuck and tllen have to put them on. To safely avoid passing motorists pull well off the road when putting on the chains. Take a pair of gloves to keep your hands warm and dry and a tarp to lie on if necessary. Above all, be sure the chains are the proper size, and that you are familiar with how to put them on. There are oilier items you should carry with you as well. A shovel could be useful to dig your ve- hicle oul, or to throw sand around a tire to regain traction. Flares can be used to warn motorists, but know how to use them. You always should carry a first aid kit, keeping its contents supplied. If you became stuck in the snow try to avoid running the vehicle for warmth. The snow build up can create conditions that could lead to carbon monoxide poi- soning. Instead, use a blanket to bundle up in. A cell phone, a gallon of fresh water, food, ex- Ira warm clothes and boots could all come in handy in emergency situations as well. Beadefensivedriver. Slowdown posted speed limited are for ideal road conditions. Drive with your lights on 24 hours a day. your driving actionssteeriug, accel- eraling and braking should be gradual to avoid losing control of your vehicle. Leave additional space between you and the vehicle you are following. Remember added stopping distance is required when road conditions are slick, and having four-wheel drive will not improve that stopping distance. Anticipate other vehicles being unable to stop or sliding out of control. Avoid changing lanes when there is snow on the ground as the ruts can cause you to lose control of your ve- hicle. When approaching overpasses, be cautious as they are usually the first to freeze. Finally, always wear your seat belt. We have lots of sup.pries to get you going! Quad C,ty Herald ;= 525 W.
