Driving in the snow requires careful consideration
Slow down and maintain a safe following distance to allow for extended braking.
Use snow tires for improved traction and consider carrying tire chains for extreme conditions.
Clear all snow and ice from your vehicle, including windows, lights, and the roof.
Brake and accelerate gently to avoid skidding, and use lower gears to enhance control on slippery surfaces.
Stay informed about weather conditions and road closures, adjusting travel plans accordingly.
Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle, including essentials like a shovel, blankets, and snacks.
Be cautious on bridges and overpasses, as they freeze faster than regular roadways. If conditions worsen, consider postponing non-essential travel for safety.
