Tips for Safe Winter Driving

Posted by Farrell Agencies on November 15, 2017

Winter driving can be stressful.

To stay safe on the road here are some tips:

  • Scrape your windows all around. 
  • Many winter collisions occur because drivers are going too fast for road conditions. Slow down and keep a 5 second following distance. 
  • Steer gently on curves and in slippery conditions.
  • Hard braking, quick acceleration and abrupt gear changes can cause you to skid.
  • Avoid using cruise control on wet, snowy or icy pavement – it reduces your reaction time and vehicle control.
  • If you do skid, release your brakes and steer in the direction you want to go. 
  • Drive with your headlights on at all times.

Even on a clear day, swirling snow makes it difficult to see and to be seen. A well-stocked winter driving kit helps to handle any emergency. It should include: blanket, shovel, scraper, snow brush, tow rope, Booster cables, warning lights or road flares, sand, salt or cat litter, extra clothing, candle and matches.

Take care out there.
