Residents and motorists should prepare for winter weather conditions.

• Plan ahead and allow extra time to reach destinations.

• Fill your car with gas.

• Make sure you have the proper emergency equipment in your car and home such as extra batteries for cell phones and chains for vehicle tires.

• When driving in icy road conditions, the shortest route is not always the safest. Consider less hilly routes in route planning.

• Slow down! Remember the faster you are going the longer it takes to stop.

For reporting of ice or hazardous roadway conditions inside the City of Atlanta, please call 404-330-6333. For areas outside the City of Atlanta, please contact the local jurisdiction responsible for emergency operations in that area.
