Plan on hitting the road? Here's a winter driving check-list

Knoxville, Tenn. (WVLT) - According to AAA, the most common roadside emergency calls they'll receive this winter can be prevented before drivers hit the road.

Winter Driving Check-List:
- Make sure your tire pressure is correct
- Check tire tread depth to ensure proper grip
- Check for battery corrosion and deterioration
- Keep your wiper fluid filled and your wipers in tip-top shape

When in doubt, take your vehicle in for a multi-point inspection to trouble-shoot larger problems. In addition to keeping your loved ones safe behind the wheel, this can also save time and money down the road.
