Check Your Tires For Winter Driving

With milder temperatures over the next few days it would be a good time to make sure your car’s tires are ready for another winter. Fond du Lac Police Officer Erik Foster says you can use a penny to check the tread to make sure it is sufficient to handle slippery conditions. If the tread goes up to President Lincoln’s head on the penny your tires are probably okay. He also recommends having an emergency kit in your car in case you get stuck during a storm. Foster says people travel so much during the holidays that it is good to be equipped for any problems that might crop up.
