CINCINNATI, Oh. (February 6, 2020)—AAA is cautioning motorists to build extra time into their morning commute, with snow showers moving into the tri-state area, leaving slippery road conditions.
“The dramatic drop in temperatures we have seen over the past couple of days and potential for accumulating snow in the forecast means motorists can expect hazardous roads for their morning commute. Motorists should plan ahead to lessen the added risks of wintry weather,” said Jenifer Moore, AAA spokeswoman. “That means leaving plenty of time to reach your destination as well as ensuring your vehicle is prepared for the cold, snow and ice before heading out."
Moore says that while no one ever plans on getting stranded, tires and batteries are some of the most common problems seen over the winter months. She says it will be all hands on deck as AAA responds to stranded motorists as quickly and safely as possible.
Each year, AAA rides to the rescue of approximately 32 million stranded motorists across the country. The not-for-profit auto club association offers the following winter-weather reminders for motorists:

Tips for Driving in the Snow
“The goal is to try to avoid a breakdown by keeping your vehicle up-to-date on maintenance. Should you break down, stay as safe and warm as possible while waiting for help to arrive,” Moore said.
Many of the winter emergency items listed above – plus pre-assembled multi-item kits including the 64-piece Traveler Road Kit and 66-piece Severe Weather Road Kit – are available, at a discount to AAA members, in the online store at AAA.com.
AAA provides automotive, travel and insurance services to 60 million members nationwide and nearly two and a half million members in Ohio. AAA advocates for the safety and mobility of its members and has been committed to outstanding road service for more than 100 years. The not-for-profit, fully tax-paying member organization works on behalf of motorists, who can now map a route, find local gas prices, discover discounts, book a hotel and track their roadside assistance service with the AAA Mobile app for iPhone, iPad and Android.
