TAHOE CITY, Calif. — This week's question: What's the best tip you have to stay safe on Tahoe-Truckee's wintry roads?

Here are the answers, as asked Sunday in Tahoe City:

Rachel Bauer, manager of a ski and ride school, Olympic Valley: "Give yourself plenty of time for travel."

Steve Littell, bartender, Tahoe City: "Have really good snow tires and a Subaru."

Erik Horn, sales, Tahoe City (part time): "Always have your headlights on. It just helps other cars see you, and be aware. Drive slower when there is snow and ice; that's the big one."

Kelley Clare, teacher, Tahoe City: "Give yourself lots of time and take it slow."
