PA State Police would like to remind drivers that when driving in less than ideal conditions, to use extra caution behind the wheel.

Don’t leave your car unattended to warm it up, doing so is a violation of the vehicle code and is an invitation for car thieves.

You must have all snow and ice removed from your windows; failure to do so may result in you getting pulled over.

Don’t follow too close to the driver ahead of you, just because you have control over your car doesn’t mean they do. If your wipers are on, your headlights must be on too.

And lastly, slow down. Plan accordingly for your commute and the conditions of the road.
