“No precautions to take. Just make sure all your lights are on and know your stopping distances are shortened. As for pulling over, I don’t have time. Got to make that delivery.”

“Slow down. I make sure my equipment is up and going good to make sure I can get through it. I carry snow chains and have satellite radio.”

“If I start in the morning, I watch the weather map. My GPS gives me the county I’m in, and the weather radio gives severe weather warnings by county.”

“Basically, watch your following distance and slow down, whether it’s sleet or snow or rain. Watch the road and your surroundings carefully.”
