Old Man Winter is flexing his muscle this March, as the region prepares for the second nor’easter in one week. Hit hard from Friday’s storm, the region has yet to fully recover and must now shift its focus to storm preparations.
AAA is no exception, as the roadside assistance leader gears up to rescue motorists during and after this next storm.
“Our roadside assistance fleet is ready to rescue our members as quickly and safely as possible, which means all hands are on deck at AAA,” said Ragina Cooper Averella, Manager of Public and Government Affairs for AAA Mid-Atlantic. “However, we urge motorists to prepare tonight for tomorrow’s storm and avoid travel, if possible, until the storm moves out and crews can treat and clear the roads.”
TONIGHT – Prepare your vehicle
“No one ever plans on getting stranded, so AAA encourages anyone with a car battery more than three years old to get it checked before temperatures drop,” added Averella. “In addition, pack a vehicle emergency kit before you need it and leave in in the car all winter. These supplies could be life-saving.”
TOMORROW – Winter Weather Driving tips and preparedness
Slow down and move over – if you see police, EMS or roadside assistance operators helping a motorist on the side of the road.
