  3. Stay back at least 10 car lengths behind the plow; don’t drive into a snow cloud.
  4. Slow down to a safe speed for current conditions.
  5. Turn your headlights on (not simply the automatic setting) and wear your seat belt.

  7. Be patient and remember snowplows are working to improve road conditions for your trip.
