   Solebury police offer the following driving tips during snowy weather:
   • Drivers should always have a full tank of gas.
   • Warm up the car to clear windows before starting out.
   • Have a working cellphone in case of an emergency.
   • Have snow tires on the vehicle.
   • Those with an SUV should make sure they can put it in 4-wheel drive.
   • An SUV can get around in snow and ice, but the stopping distance does not change; an SUV still will skid on the ice and snow.
   • Always maintain a safe distance between vehicles.
   • Always clear the snow from a vehicle — all windows and the roof — so it will not slide on the windshield and block vision.
   • Do not leave a vehicle parked on the side of the road during a winter storm to avoid towing and a ticket.
   • Always allow extra driving time for poor road conditions and traffic delays.
