Winter driving can present some unique challenges. Many cold weather conditions can lead to collisions or other issues on the road. To improve your winter driving experience, it's important to keep a few things in mind.

  • Take it Slow: If road conditions are less than ideal, don’t rush it. Take your time with gradual throttle and braking alike. Give yourself the space and time to react to situations.
  • Ensure Visibility: Before you start driving, make sure all of your windows and mirrors are properly cleared. Scrape any ice and snow off of your windshield and make sure you have defrost running. It's worth taking the time to make sure you can see what's going on around you.
  • Prepare Your Vehicle: Certain maintenance steps can help your vehicle perform better in cold, snowy conditions. We recommend installing a set of winter tires and installing a fresh battery.
  • Plan Your Route: If you know certain roadways become more dangerous during winter conditions, be sure to plan a route around them. It may take longer, but you'll feel more confident along the way.

These are just a few of the ways you can set yourself up for success in the coming winter months. However, not all of us end up so lucky.
