BOISE, Idaho (KIFI) — Are you “Idaho Ready” for winter driving?
The Gem State is magical when it’s blanketed in snow, and the Idaho Transportation Department (ITD) wants to make sure everyone is prepared to enjoy it safely.
Now is the time to prepare yourself and your vehicle for winter conditions.  
“There is so much to love about Idaho in the snow, but drivers who want to get out there and enjoy it need to be careful,” ITD Director Scott Stokes said. “Giving driving your full and undivided attention combined with an extra measure of caution could be what keeps you from having irreversible regrets.”
