AAA Chicago provides useful tool for safe winter driving


AURORA—Since 1902, AAA has placed the highest priority on traffic safety for the motorist. As part of that effort, in 1995, AAA Chicago spearheaded the formation of a coalition of federal, state and private agencies in Illinois and Indiana known as “Ice Pack.” The group’s mission is to save lives by providing information on safe driving in winter weather conditions. The message from the Ice Pack coalition is simple.

“Ice Pack is dedicated to increasing motorists’ awareness of critical winter safety measures,” said Steve Nolan, spokesperson for AAA Chicago. “By joining forces, the Ice Pack agencies are sending a strong and unified safety message.”

The Ice Pack Web site is the source for winter weather driving information. Its purpose is to help motorists prepare for winter travel. The site provides information on preparing a vehicle for winter and surviving a tough season, while providing direct links to expressway travel times, statewide road conditions and up-to-the-minute weather forecasts. By visiting, motorists are one click closer to a safer winter season behind the wheel.
