INDIANAPOLIS -- The Indiana Department of Homeland Security has issued travel advisories and watches across Indiana.
The difference between a travel advisory and a travel watch is the degree of danger to drivers. An advisory means that anybody driving should use caution, while a watch means the conditions are "threatening top the safety of the public," according to the IDHS.
The Indiana Department of Transportation has given tips to drivers to make sure they are taking the necessary precautions.
- Fully clear off your front and rear windshield, and side mirrors
- Use low-beam lights
- Increase following distance so you can barely see taillights
- Turn on emergency flashers if you're stopped or traveling slower
- Make sure your fuel tank is full and your phone is charged
- Apply brakes firmly
