  • Wishing You Safe Travels this Holiday

    61 views 2 weeks ago
    Only travel in winter weather when necessary, leave enough time to safely reach your destination and plan your route to avoid snowy/icy areas and steep hills
    Before driving, check weather and road conditions by dialing 511 within Nevada (or 1-877-NV-ROADS outside of Nevada)
    Share your travel itinerary so others know when to expect you
    Remove snow and ice from all vehicle windows, mirrors, lights, turn signals and license plates
    Buckle up
    Turn on headlights to see and be seen
    Turn off cruise control
    Avoid quick starts, stops and fast turns. Accelerate, brake and steer smoothly and gradually
    Reduce speed. Speed limits are based on normal road and weather conditions, not winter road conditions
    Do not slam on brakes. Apply steady pressure on ABS-equipped vehicles and pump the brakes if necessary on non-ABS vehicles
    Always comply with all posted chain requirements
    If your vehicle has snow tires, install and use them between October 1 and April 30
    Keep additional distance from other vehicles
    Watch carefully for snow removal equipment
    Do not pass without good distance and sight clearance
    Use extra caution on bridges, ramps, overpasses and shaded areas- they may freeze first
    Maintain a high fuel level
    If vehicle begins to skid, steer in direction of slide and slowly remove foot from accelerator
    Be aware of black ice
    If parked or stuck in snow, leave window slightly cracked for ventilation and make sure vehicle exhaust system is clear of snow
    Always carry tire chains, especially when traveling in mountain passes or typically snowy areas
    Remember – 4-wheel-drive vehicles cannot necessarily turn or stop any better than 2-wheel-drive vehicles

    Tire chains / tow strap
    Spare batteries
    Ice scraper
    Cell phone for emergency communication (do not use while driving)
    Snow shovel
    Jumper cables
    Small bag of sand for wheel traction
    Extra winter clothes / coat / gloves / socks
    Blanket or sleeping bag
    Non-perishable foods / water
    First aid supplies / prescription medication
    Battery-operated radio
    Candles / matches or lighter
    State map for navigation in event of winter detour

    Use caution when following, passing or approaching snow removal equipment
    Drive a safe distance behind snowplows. Plows often travel slower than other vehicles to remove snow, apply sand and liquid anti-icers and assist stranded vehicles
    Before attempting to pass snow removal equipment, check direction of snow discharge to avoid snow and debris thrown from equipment. Remember that plows are wider than most vehicles and portions of the plow and blade may be obscured by blowing snow
    Don’t crowd the plow. Only pass snow removal vehicles when a safe, legal passing area is available and adequately clear of snow and/or treated with salt and sand
    Don’t travel beside a snowplow. They can shift sideways after hitting snow packs or drifts
    When a plow approaches you, allow the plow room to operate by reducing speed and moving to the right side of the road if there is room to safely do so
    Do not brake with unnecessary sudden movements when in front of a snowplow - plows cannot stop as quickly as an automobile
    Don’t drive through white out conditions caused by swirling snow around a snowplow. Safely pull to the side or slow to allow visibility to improve
    Remember that a snowplow operator’s field of vision is restricted. You may see them, but they may not see you Show less
