WINTER DRIVING TIPS!
Dated: February 18 2021
While winter weather is still on the horizon, and media coverage on all the road accidents across the country due to inclement weather - sharing some relevant driving tips might be beneficial:
General Winter Driving Tips:
- Avoid traveling along. If unavoidable, share your destination, route, and ETA with someone.
- Dress in layers.
- Keep informed - latest road conditions, listen to live radio.
- Drive cautiously, slow, stay on major streets/highways.
- Know your vehicle; braking system.
- Keep your gas tank as full as possible.
- Travel during daylight hours.
Prior to Long Trips:
- Battery Life.
- Windshield wipers functioning & fluid full.
- Exhaust system, heater, defrost functioning.
- Oil level.
- All-weather tires have sufficient tread.
- *Some areas require vehicles to be equipped with chains or snow tires with studs.
When driving on snow and ice - to avoid skidding requires extra time and distance! With Anti-lock brakes, press the pedal down firmly and hold it. Without anti-lock brakes, you need to lightly pump the pedal. WHICHEVER the system - give yourself plenty of room to stop, and NEVER slam on your brakes.
Keep in mind - even if you drive an SUV with 4-wheel drive, you may not stop any faster, or maintain control any better when you lose traction. 4-wheel drive may get you to go faster, but you won't stop any sooner!
SNOW - ICE - WET ROADS:
- Accelerate slowly.
- Avoid abrupt steering.
- Merge slowly.
- Always look farther ahead in traffic.
