12/15/2020 - STAY UP TO DATE & WINTER STORM PREPARATION
Winter Weather is coming! Check out these winter driving and storm tips. Also, know how to stay connected during utility outages and other emergencies.

Text FairfieldCT to 888777 and follow the prompts to enroll or go to fairfieldct.org/alerts.

?? Protect Yourself and Your Loved Ones:
Always wear your seat belt every trip, every time - and ensure that everyone else in your vehicle is buckled-up in age- and size-appropriate car seats, booster seats, or seat belts.

?? Stay Alert:
Keep your gas tank close to full whenever possible, and, on longer trips, plan enough time to stop to stretch, get something to eat, return calls or text messages, and change drivers or rest if you feel drowsy.

?? Avoid Risky Driving Behaviors:
You know the rules: Do not text or drive distracted; obey posted speed limits; and always drive sober. Both alcohol and drugs whether legal or illicit can cause impairment. It is illegal to drive impaired by any substance in all States – no exceptions. Alcohol and drugs can impair the skills critical for safe and responsible driving such as coordination, judgment, perception, and reaction time.

???? Driving in Winter Conditions:
Slow down. It’s harder to control or stop your vehicle on a slick or snow- covered surface.

?? Navigating Around Snow Plows:
Don’t crowd a snow plow or travel beside it. Snow plows travel slowly, make wide turns, stop often, overlap lanes, and exit the road frequently. However, the road behind an active snow plow is safer to drive on. If you find yourself behind a snow plow, stay behind it or use caution when passing.

?? What to Do in a Winter Emergency:
If you are stopped or stalled in wintry weather, follow these safety rules:
• Stay with your car and don’t overexert yourself.
• Put bright markers on the antenna or windows and keep the interior dome light turned on.
• To avoid asphyxiation from carbon monoxide poisoning, don’t run your car for long periods of time with the windows up or in an enclosed space. If you must run your vehicle, clear the exhaust pipe of any snow and run it only sporadically — just long enough to stay warm.
