With colder and wintery-like weather conditions expected this weekend, local law enforcement is advising you to get your vehicle prepared for the upcoming season of snow on the roads. Professional Standards Captain Carl Waterstreet from the Door County Sheriff’s Office says it is especially important to check the tread depth and quality of your vehicle’s tires this time of year.
Waterstreet notes that roads have not been treated for snow or ice yet this season and may still have oil residue on them that can make for some slippery spots. He recommends carrying a spare phone charger and an emergency kit in your car’s trunk with road flares, gloves, jumper cables, a flashlight, and blankets.
