Winter weather (bitter cold temperatures, snow and ice) is almost here and drivers need to remember to take extra care.

An earlier post, Drivers Prepare: Winter Weather Is Arriving Soon, discussed how you should know your vehicle functions and features, having your vehicle in good working condition and by preparing a safety kit.
