Stay safe on icy and snowy roads

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A weather system could bring snow to parts of Oregon this weekend.

With that, the Oregon Department of Transportation is reminding drivers to be ready and take a few safety precautions if they’re driving in higher elevations.

  • Slow down and turn off cruise control
  • Keel the fuel tank full in case you get stuck at a road closure
  • Carry emergency supplies like water, food, warm clothes and a flashlight
  • Increase your following distance
  • Keep your cell phone charged but don’t use it while driving
