Winter Driving Tips

 

AAA recommends the following winter driving tips:

·         Check the weather before you leave. If possible just stay home.

·         Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.

·         Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand).

·         Always look and steer where you want to go.

·         Pack blankets, gloves, hat, food, water and any needed medication in your vehicle.

·         If you become snow-bound, stay with your vehicle.

·         Don't over exert yourself if you try to push or dig your vehicle out of the snow.

·         At night, keep the dome light on if possible. It's easier for rescuers to find you.

·         Accelerate and decelerate slowly.

·         Drive slowly. Everything takes longer on snow-covered roads.

·         Don't power up hills. Applying extra gas on snow-covered roads just starts your wheels spinning

·         Don't stop going up a hill. There's nothing worse than trying to get moving up a hill on an icy road. Get some inertia going on a flat roadway before you take on the hill.
