At A Glance
Walking On Ice
Short, slow steps can help when walking on snow or ice.
Shoes for snow or icy weather should have a good rubber tread. Insulated boots are best.
If walking near a roadway, keep a lookout for vehicles that may have lost traction.
Pedestrians should wear bright colors at night or in fading daylight so motorists can see them.
Sunglasses can help avoid the glare from snow or ice.
