Road Safety Tips – Winter Weather

Dec 31, 2019 | Safety

Driving our nation’s roadways in any weather condition can be hazardous. Especially during the holiday season when winter weather combines anxious travelers with hectic holiday schedules. Be prepared on the road with these travel safety tips:

  • Keep your gas tank full. Try to have no less than half a tank at all times.
  • Make sure your mobile device is fully charged and that you have a charger in the car.
  • Check your route and use mapping technology when available. Consider packing a road atlas as well.
  • Pack blankets, water, a flashlight, batteries, a shovel, and some food for emergencies.
  • Consider carrying a bag of cat litter to help with traction in the case you get stuck.
  • Drive cautiously and keep a safe distance from the car in front of you.
  • Check your tire pressure and tread depth before traveling. Do not reduce tire pressure in an attempt to improve traction.
  • Remember that 4-wheel drive does not mean 4-wheel stop. A 4×4 vehicle will not stop better in icy conditions.
  • If you are stuck in a serious storm, do not leave your car. Run the engine periodically, checking to ensure the tailpipe is clear of blockages, and wait for help to arrive.
  • Finally and most importantly, always buckle up!

In conclusion, be alert and drive with confidence. Hopefully these safety tips make your holiday season more safe and enjoyable!
