Be Snow Careful This Winter Driving Season !
The snowfalls in the northern and midwestern parts of the country can lead to some challenging driving conditions. Whether you are new to this seasonal difference or have lived in these conditions all your life, the combination of snow, freezing rain, the appearance of black ice and slushy conditions require you to be especially cautious.
Experts tell us that one of the primary causes of accidents in this slippery season are worn spots on tires. If you have not already
checked your tires, or made this a regular part of your car maintenance program, do it now. A bald spot on a tire meeting a slick spot on the road or highway are ingredients for an accident.
Another common cause of accidents is very easily prevented…CLEAN OFF YOUR WINDOWS….ALL of them ! Inability to see out the back window or use the rear view mirrors or all of the windshield, can have tragic results. Taking a few minutes with a snow brush and scraper while the car warms up can mean saving you the possibility of an accident.
There are lots of fun activities to enjoy during the winter….sledding, skating, skiing…keep your outdoor activities fun filled and accident free…pro actively prepare for the changes nature deals our roadways this winter.
