Driving in the Snow
Winter driving is considerably more dangerous than driving during any other time in the year. It presents several challenges not seen during the rest of the year, such as ice on the road and snowy weather. If you’re not prepared for the increased dangers, you could easily wind up a statistic. But by preparing for the dangerous road conditions, you can ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

Snow Driving Tips
The key to safe driving, no matter what the season, is being prepared for potential danger. With that in mind, these precautions can help keep you safe this winter:
- Put snow tires or chains on your tires. This will increase your traction and make it less likely for your car to lose grip, fishtail, or swerve out of control on the slick winter road surface. While it can be an unpleasant task, changing your tires in the winter can save your life.
- Snow can easily block your windshield, making it difficult to see and react to changing circumstances on the road. Make sure to replace your windshield wipers at the first sign of reduced effectiveness. Always scrape the ice off your windows before driving.
- Have your breaks checked before the winter season. Breaks are always important in preventing accidents, and this is especially true during the winter.
- Be cautious of black ice. Black ice is hard to see, as it may look like a puddle or even just a slightly wet surface. If it looks slick, avoid it.
