HARTFORD, CT (WFSB) -

AAA reminded drivers of the dangers of driving in the snow this winter season. 

AAA Spokesperson Amy Paramenter said even a little snow can cause lots of problems.

Parmenter said problems happen "especially when there is just a little bit of snowfall.

"People tend to think 'well it's just a little bit of snow,' and they don't adjust their behavior accordingly," Parmenter said. 

Parmenter also said AAA crews are expected to be busy on Saturday. 

"They expect a number of calls at this time of year because so many people are going to be racing around doing holiday shopping," Parmenter said.

AAA urges drivers to do the following:

  • slow down 
  • limit distractions by not using cruise control
  • leave more room between you and the car in front of you as the roads will get slippery.
