The South Dakota Safety Council checklist for winter driving

  • Always use seat belts.
  • Allow plenty of travel time.
  • Clear snow and ice from all vehicle windows, hood, headlights, brake lights and directional signals.
  • Adjust speed to road and weather conditions. Slow down to help avoid crashes and minimize those that occur.
  • Keep a safe stopping distance between vehicles, and leave extra room between your vehicle and snow plows or other removal equipment.
  • Avoid using cruise control.
  • Turn on headlights when it's snowing or sleeting (it's the law).
