Health Tip: Staying Safe During Winter Weather
Stay home if the weather service advises

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Snow, ice and freezing rain can make for dangerous travel during the winter months.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention offers these winter weather travel safety tips:

  • Don't travel when there are weather warnings from the weather service.
  • If you cannot avoid travel, make sure you let friends and family know of your planned route and what time you should arrive.
  • If you are stranded, move arms and legs but stay with your car. If help is within 100 yards, go for help.
  • Make sure others can see you by lifting the hood of your car, keeping the interior light on when the engine is running and putting a bright cloth on your antenna.
  • Leave a downwind window open, and only run the engine for 10 minutes of every hour; check to be sure there is nothing blocking the vehicle's tailpipe.
