As we get through the holiday season and enter the colder winter months, we wanted to take a second and talk about winter weather driving safety. If might save your life or the life of someone else’s. Harmon, Linder & Rogowsky reviews some of the best winter weather driving tips below:
Always Make Sure You Are Paying Attention to the Weather before You Decide to Go Out and Drive: When the temperatures are really cold, it’s not out of the question for there to be a flash snow or ice storm. Even if you watched the weather the night before, it doesn’t hurt to check it again before you go out into your vehicle. If you are traveling a long distance, please be sure to check a few days in advance.
Make Sure Your Vehicle Is Ready for the Road: If you haven’t had your vehicle checked in a while, now is a good time to do so. That’s because the cold weather can have a significant impact on your vehicle. For example, your battery needs to work harder to generate enough power to start up your engine. Your tires deflate quicker as well. The best thing you can do is perform preventative checks and services to keep your vehicle in tip-top shape.
Be a Good Safe, Driver: Just as any time of year, there are things you can do to stay safe on the road. Because ice and the longer darkness could impact your ability to drive, being safe is even more important. This means no speeding or other forms of reckless driving. You should also not text or drive, eat when you drive, or do other things that will cause you to lose focus. Finally, if you feel tired, there is no shame in pulling over to a coffee shop or restaurant so you can get your bearings. And, of course, don’t even think about drinking and driving!
