The trauma team at Intermountain Medical Center has provided a list of tips to help you avoid a trip to the hospital.
Keep your sidewalks and driveway free of snow and ice.
Wear shoes or boots that have good traction
Pay attention while walking - ice patches can be anywhere
Allow time for bad weather and traffic delays
Leave ample distance between your car and the driver in front of you - braking distances can be nine times longer on icy surfaces.
