Mountain Driving Equates To Cautious Driving
Be aware that driving conditions on mountain roads change suddenly. During the winter months, roads may appear dry but in shaded corners there may still be ice. Also, be aware of “black ice”. The road may only look wet but may be a thin layer of very slick ice. Quality all-season or studded snow tires will help in these situations.
Also in an on-going effort to maintain and improve your safety and well-being, follow these simple laws.
