Stay Safe on the Road This Winter With These Driving Tips!
-
If you must drive in the snow, make sure you are prepared. Here are a few things you can do ahead of time to keep you and your car safe in snowy road conditions.
-
-Be aware of other drivers on the road and give them ample space.
-
-Make sure your minimum tire tread on snowy roads is 3/16 of an inch.   
-
-Carry extra blankets, a flashlight, a shovel, and even some snacks/water.
-
-Fill up on windshield wiper fluid rated for low temperatures.
-
-Get a tune-up on your car and make sure everything is working properly.
-
-Keep your gas tank over half full. In times that you are stranded, having heat and power will be important.
-
-Keep a kit of snow removal products; salt, non-clumping kitty litter, etc. in your trunk.

-All-season tires are ideal if you live in a warmer climate that doesn’t see much snowfall, and icy road conditions are rare. Although these tires are designed to provide traction in wet and slippery conditions, they may not be enough for icy and snowy roads. 
-
-If you live in a climate that sees snow every winter, as well as icy road conditions, winter tires are probably for you. These tires are designed with special tread meant to drive in all sorts of winter conditions including, snow, rain, sleet, and ice.
-
-Avoid passing on the right side of a snowplow. Snowplows are designed to push all the snow on the road off to the right. Trying to pass an active snow plow could not just damage your vehicle, but also cause you to lose visibility temporarily.
