Here are some safe driving tips:
Prepare your vehicle
Ideally well before the cold weather arrives, get your vehicle ready. That includes making sure your tires are in great condition and properly inflated, getting an oil change, and catching up on any other required maintenance. Make sure your windshield wiper blades are in great condition and that your vehicle’s defroster and heat work correctly. Replace any parts as needed.
Have enough supplies
Make sure you have adequate supplies in your vehicle. That includes an ice scraper, snow shovel, extra blankets, paper maps, food and water. Also, always have at least half of a tank of fuel in your vehicle at all times. Make sure you have plenty of windshield wiper fluid in your vehicle at all times.
Keep current on safe driving skills
Make sure your cold weather driving skills are up to date. Make sure you know how to drive in ice, snow, and cold weather. If needed, take a class either online or in person that covers the skills you need to strengthen. When driving during bad weather conditions, slow down and use extra caution.
Know when to travel – or not
There are times when it is just not wise or safe to travel, and it is better to stay off the roads. It is wise not to travel during times of ice, snow, high winds, and frigid temperatures. Keep close tabs on weather forecasts and current conditions.
