Don’t Drive Tonight If Possible
Roads are expected to be extremely icy and treacherous this Christmas Eve, so stay home if at all possible. Here's where it is expected to be particularly bad.
Icy roads cover all of the Treasure Valley. Experts say the roads will be so bad tonight that you shouldn't travel unless you absolutely have to.
If you do have to drive, Idaho Driving School says be careful not to make these two mistakes.
- Don't over accelerate
- Make sure you brake in plenty of time
- Don't use cruise control
- Don't let yourself be distracted by your cell phone, food, or drink.
According to KTVB, keeping these things in your car is also a good idea.
