Is your vehicle ready for winter?
TRI-STATE (WFIE) - It's important to make sure your vehicles are ready for the weather.
One of the most important things is to check your tires.
The Tri-State has already seen the first snowfall this year and transportation officials are asking drivers to continue to step it up by inspecting their vehicles.
According to Kentucky State Police, tire failures, bad brakes, and balding tires caused more than 2,000 accidents last winter.
Transportation officials say it's tempting to try to milk as much mileage out of a set of tires, but during the winter it isn't worth the risk to your safety or others on the road.
Many tire stores have special deals and rebates during the winter months, and most will check your tire tread for free.
