RANDOM LAKE, WI--Nov. 25, 2013: Winter is on its way to Wisconsin, which means drivers must prepare for snow and slick driving conditions. While some drivers adjust their driving style to suit the weather, others do not exercise necessary caution for winter driving. This year, Eric von Schledorn wants all Wisconsin drivers to be as safe as possible on the road by following some of its best winter driving safety tips.

If weather conditions are too hazardous for safe driving the best option is to stay home whenever possible. Until a snow plow or sanding crew can treat the roads it might be best to request working from home or reschedule any plans.

When drivers are unable to avoid driving it is important that they have proper traction on the road. Whether drivers switch to winter tires, use tire chains or keep a bag of sand in their trunk, it is important to feel stable and strong while driving in the snow.

Visibility is also one of the most important parts of driving in inclement weather conditions. Drivers should replace windshield wipers, top off wiper fluid and antifreeze, clean windows and mirrors and use the defroster whenever necessary.

Once on the road it is important to be as cautious as possible. Drive slowly, be alert and don't overreact in a slippery situation. Black ice and snow significantly reduce stopping time, so drivers should take their time and leave plenty of space for braking.
