Caltrans would like to remind motorists to prepare for snowy and icy driving conditions during the winter. Any vehicles traveling to higher elevations must have traction control devices, such as snow chains, on-hand for the chain control restrictions that are common this time of year. Motorists should also pack a snow duster to remove any snow that accumulates on top of their vehicle and check their windshield wipers to ensure they’re in good condition and ready for stormy weather.
