Tips for Safe Winter Driving

Clear the Snow

Before taking off, be sure to completely clear snow and ice from your windows, lights, hood, and roof before taking off. By making sure you have optimum visibility, you can keep your eyes focused on the road.

Break Smart

Make sure to use your breaks carefully. It takes more time and distance to stop in slippery conditions. By braking early and correctly, you can avoid unnecessary accidents.

Know the Current Road Conditions

You can quickly find out the roads conditions through calling your 511 number. Most weather stations also have this information readily available so you can plan your driving trip accordingly.

Slow Down

Everything takes a bit longer when it’s snowing. Give yourself plenty of time to accelerate, stop, and turn by driving slowly.

Have Supplies Ready

Even the most prepared drivers may experience issues during the winter. Make sure you pack booster cables, blankets, snow shovel and scraper, flashlights and batteries, extra clothing, non-perishable food, sand for traction, flares, and paper towels so that you have plenty of supplies should things not go as planned.

We hope these safe winter driving tips help you keep safe during the cold months ahead.
