Every year, dozens of Wisconsin drivers are injured or stranded as a result of improper driving in hazardous conditions. Before you take off on a winter journey, make sure you know how to get around Wisconsin safely. Here are some tips from your neighborhood Wisconsin Chrysler Dodge Jeep® FIAT dealer.

You need to be prepared if you want to raise your chances of getting home without problems.
- Brush off any ice or snow from your vehicle.
- Do not warm up your vehicle in an enclosed area.
- Never drive tired.
- Research current road conditions so you can be prepared for what’s coming.
