AAA received more than 100 calls for help from drivers by 8 a.m. on Monday. Temperatures were expected to fall to -7 degrees
with wind chill factors dangerously cold from -25 to -30 degrees.
Frozen locks and lockouts, where drivers warm up their car and lock the keys inside, were the most common problems. According to the AAA, the Roadside Rescue Team had more than 2,500 calls since Friday morning.
AAA tips for drivers:
-Make sure your battery has ample starting
power. At 0 degrees Fahrenheit, your battery loses about 35 percent of its
power and your engine needs 2.5 times more power to start than on a warm summer
-Check your tire pressure to prevent a
flat. For every 10 degrees the
temperature drops, you lose one pound of tire pressure.
-Park your car in the garage. If you have no
garage, select a place that is protected from wind and large snow drifts.
-To avoid frozen door or door locks, buy a
lubricant that is available in most auto supply stores. Apply
prior to the freezing weather for best results.
-Keep your gas tank at least half full to
avoid fuel-line freeze-up.
-Clear all snow and ice from the entire car.
-Reduce speed and increase following distance
on winter roads.
