*Keep emergency supples on hand like a cell phone, flashlight, first aid kit, blankets for a heat source, bottled water and food.
*If the car begins to skid, remember to make small adjustments, steer into your skid and don't apply the brakes suddenly and don't over steer the vehicle. You'll probably lose control.
*If you see hazardous situations while you're on the highway, state troopers say you can use your cell phone to dial *LSP that's *577."
You can also get ready for your trip by checking the state police's website - LSP.org or by calling 511
