Road Rules: Get Ready For Winter

Regardless of whether there’s snow on the ground, you can take steps to prepare yourself for winter and all that it brings. Feel free to use the information below as you prepare yourself for winter travel.

Preparation is key to successfully navigating winter roads. Winter weather can bring unexpected conditions, so make sure that your vehicle is ready for ice and snow.

For the majority of Pennsylvania, all-season radial tires that are mud and snow rated are appropriate for winter driving. In areas of the state that experience more snow, motorists may choose to install dedicated winter tires or carry a set of tire chains or cables.

In addition to preparing your vehicle, carrying an emergency kit in your car is an easy but important way to make sure you’re ready for the season.

As we experience inclement winter weather conditions, the West Goshen Police Department would like to remind you to be sure to clear your vehicles of snow and ice before taking to the roads. 

The Pennsylvania Vehicle Code provides the following:

§ 3720 Snow and ice dislodged or falling from moving vehicle

When snow or ice is dislodged or falls from a moving vehicle and strikes another vehicle or pedestrian causing death or serious bodily injury as defined in Section 3742 (relating to accidents involving death or personal injury), the operator of the vehicle from which the snow or ice is dislodged or falls shall be subject to a fine of not less than $ 200 nor more than $ 1,000 for each offense.

Drive carefully and please allow for extra time when driving in inclement weather conditions.
