Winter Driving Tips

Winter Driving Safety Tips:

  • Do not drive if you are tired.
  • Keep your tank full of gas.
  • When driving on snow, accelerate slowly, which helps you to gain traction and avoid skids. Brake slowly as well.
  • Make sure your brakes are working correctly.
  • Keep a safety kit in your vehicle, including a blanket, boots, gloves, hat, flashlight, water, and shovel.
  • Do not use cruise control when driving on wet, icy, sandy, or otherwise slippery road conditions.
  • If your vehicle becomes stuck in snow, your vehicle can be the warmest place to stay. Do not try to walk in a severe storm, especially if you are out in the country.
  • It is important to use your headlights in the daytime, not so much, so that you can see, but so that other cars can see you.
  • Always allow time for your car to warm up before driving.
