Inclement weather has a significant impact on intercity highways in nations with rugged terrain. Turkey is one of these countries, and adverse weather has a detrimental impact on transportation virtually every year. Adverse weather results in not only being stranded on the road, but also traffic accidents, increased fuel consumption, and lost time, among others. The driver's experience of being stranded on the road in difficult winter periods will be disclosed in this study, along with the link between the age of the drivers and vehicle types. Survey was conducted with drivers in five cities of Turkey in order to capture drivers? behavioral patterns in circumstances where they were stranded on the road due to snow.As a consequence, 24 percent of the participants claimed that they have been stuck on the road; nonetheless, 10% of the participants do not wear winter tires even under the harshest winter conditions.
