The Illinois State Police is reminding residents to be careful as they travel during the holiday season, particularly in case of inclement weather.
Trooper Elizabeth Clausing said preparation can go a long way.
“Check your vehicle tires. Make sure you have necessary emergency equipment if you have a flat tire or your vehicle breaks down, and always allow yourself some extra time to do that preparation before you hit the road.”
She also said preparing an inclement weather kit is a good idea.
