Preventing Vehicle Collisions In Ice & Snow

Brush up on your winter driving know-how! Here are some tips on how to stay out of trouble when winter driving conditions become dangerous.

  • Give plenty of warning to other drivers when turning, changing lanes or stopping. This will give them the required time to slow down in slippery conditions.
  • Keep extra distance between cars. Avoid following too closely. You never know when you will hit an icy patch!
  • Be cautious of black ice. Even the most experienced driver can be caught off guard by black ice. It is an almost invisible danger.
  • Keep your hands on the wheel at all times. Make sure you pull over if you need to make a call, text or deal with your kids in the backseat.
  • Prepare your vehicle by using winter tires.
  • Make sure that all passengers are wearing a seat belt.
  • Top up washer fluid so that your window remains clear.

Hope these tips help you stay safe for the winter season.

Until next time,
