JEFFERSON CITY - Cold temperatures and winter precipitation are in the forecast, and that means it's time to winterize your car.
A video on the Missouri Department of Transportation's YouTube site reviews the most important things to remember while getting your car ready for winter, from tires to antifreeze to what to pack for an emergency. The video is located at www.youtube.com/modotvideo.
Here are some of the highlights:
• Check your tire pressure and tread condition.
• Make sure your antifreeze is at proper levels.
• Inspect the oil level and windshield wiper fluid.
• Pack a small emergency kit in case of the unexpected.
MoDOT also reminds motorists to check road conditions by consulting its Traveler Information Map at http://www.modot.org/ or by calling MoDOT Customer Service anytime at 1-888-ASK-MODOT (888-275-6636).
