These individuals do need to be aware, however, that there is an inherent risk every time they go for a ride.

If you are driving across the state to visit family for Thanksgiving or another holiday get-together, you might run into a whole gamut of different weather conditions, most of them bad. The last thing you want is to have a wreck or car problems while you are heading north on Highway 45 on your way out of town.
