Gov. Mike Pence has proclaimed this week Winter Weather Preparedness Week in Indiana.
To help Hoosiers prepare, the Indiana State Police offer the following tips if you become stranded on the road.
•Don't leave your car. It's the best protection you have.
•Tie a brightly colored cloth to your antenna.
•Roll down your window a small amount to allow fresh air in your vehicle.
•Keep exhaust pipe free of blockage to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning.
•Don't panic. An idling car uses about one gallon of gas per hour.
