As temperatures reach the single digits, authorities are urging drivers to take extra precautions while out on the road.

Here are some tips for drivers out in the cold:

  • Keep a winter kit in your car, with items like water, snack food, extra clothing, a first aid kit, a flashlight with extra batteries as well as matches and small candles.
  • Make sure to keep your tank at least half full.
  • If you're taking a long trip, tell someone where you are going and the route you will take.
  • If you are stranded, stay in your vehicle and only run the vehicle 10 minutes an hour to conserve gas.
