(WTNH) — Folks at AAA are reminding neighbors that just because the snow stopped falling it doesn’t mean they won’t be busy responding to emergency calls.
“We’ve already responded to dozens of calls since midnight.” says AAA spokesperson Amy Parmenter. “Most of the major roads have been plowed but they are still wet”.
AAA lists 3 things drivers can do before they leave the house:
1. Completely clear your car of snow before heading out – headlights, mirrors, windows, roof.
2. Make sure the area around your vehicle’s tailpipe is clear of snow, even if the car is just idling in the driveway
3. Watch for children – visibility will continue to be an issue in some areas with high snow drifts. Take turns and reverse with caution.
AAA reports they helped out over 700 stranded drivers in Connecticut on Saturday.
