ST. CLOUD – Today (Friday) is the last day of Minnesota’s Winter Weather Awareness Week with the topic of winter driving safety.

Winter weather and road conditions can be life-threatening if you’re unprepared. Some Minnesotans will find themselves stranded on the roadside this winter.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety encourages you to travel with a winter survival kit in your vehicle.

If you do become stranded keep the air in your car fresh. They say it is better to be cold and awake than warm and sleepy.

The threat of carbon monoxide poisoning increases when your car is running. You can keep warm without using fuel by keeping constant motion and if there are other passengers you should huddle close to each other.

They suggest that you carry a cell phone with you for emergency purposes.
