The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee are reminding motorists to winterize their vehicles and review safe driving tips ahead of the winter season. Studded snow tires are now legal for use in New York through April 30. Other tips to get ready for winter include getting your car services before the storms hit and make sure your battery and coolant systems are in good working order. Experts also recommend keeping your windshield washer fluid full and don’t let your gas tank drop below half as gas lines can freeze.
