Check Road Conditions Before You Drive

By | News | No Comments

While the chaos of holiday driving is in the rearview mirror, many of us have to occasionally travel the mountain passes or other high elevation roads during the winter.

Whether you’re taking a weekend vacation, driving for work or hauling freight — be cautious — because many roads are still susceptible to dangerous weather, such as snow, ice or fog.

So how can you best prepare for a safe road trip?

In addition to packing extra food, water, blankets and other emergency supplies, knowledge is an important tool in your kit.

If you’re driving in Oregon, visit TripCheck to get current road and weather conditions. 

Pro tip: View the cameras specific to the highways you’re traveling for a real time view of the weather and road conditions!

Winter Driving Advice

By | News | No Comments

Severe weather can be frightening for travelers, no matter how much driving experience you have. Winter storms, bad weather and dangerous road conditions are a factor in nearly half a million crashes and over 2,000 road deaths every winter, according to research from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. 

Before you head out, whether for work or pleasure, make sure you know how to handle a road emergency if one should arise. 

  • Keep cold weather gear in your car — including extra food and water, warm clothes, a flashlight, a glass scraper, blankets, medications, etc.
  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated and have enough tread.
  • Keep at least half a tank of fuel in your vehicle.
  • Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, like a garage.
  • Do not use cruise control when driving on ice and snow.

With plenty of winter weather ahead this season, make sure you’re prepared to deal with a potential emergency or dangerous road conditions.
