RICHMOND, VA (Friday, December 7, 2018) – It may seem a bit early for Virginia residents to start preparing for snow storms, however as predicted by local meteorologists, southern and central Virginia will get a good dose of winter weather this weekend with some areas getting as much as a foot of snow or more.
Preparing now for winter weather, involves more than just picking up bread and milk at the local grocery store and there's no time like the present. AAA is advising drivers to take precautions now to avoid headaches on the roadways.
"The best advice is to stay off the roads when inclement weather hits," said Tammy Arnette, Senior Public Affairs Specialist for AAA. "If you must drive, be sure to prepare your vehicle and your mind for the weather event. Pack a winter emergency roadside kit in your vehicle, slow down when precipitation begins to fall and give yourself enough space between you and other cars around you in the event of a skid or sudden stop. "
AAA car care locations in the Richmond, Virginia area are offering a free 42-point safety check for motorists ahead of the storm. Vehicle safety checks will be available by appointment only and can be scheduled by contacting any one of the AAA Car Care locations below.
