"By slowing down, giving snow plows room to work and allowing extra time to get to your destination, we can save lives on New York's highways this winter," said McDonald.
McDonald suggests motorists avoid unnecessary travel and check 511 or 511ny.org for the latest travel conditions. In addition, she recommends motorists have an emergency kit prepared stocked with sand, shovel, flares, booster cables, ice scraper, blankets, water and rope, in the event their car becomes disabled or stranded.
