Keeping families safe when traveling in wintry weather

RALEIGH -- With the possibility of snow this week coupled with the current bone chilling temperatures, Safe Kids NC wants to remind parents of the best ways to stay safe when traveling.  Winter weather can bring a combination of potentially life-threatening conditions including sleet, snow and ice that can cause road conditions to quickly deteriorate.

It is always best to wait until roads improve before driving on them, but Safe Kids NC and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers these driving tips to keep you and your family safe if you must head out on the slick roads.
