Winter Driving Tips
No matter how long you’ve been driving for it’s never easy to drive in the winter or on snow and ice covered roads. We could all use a refresher on some winter driving tips every now and then. One of the best winter driving tips is to stay home and not even put yourself on the road but that is sometimes unavoidable. If you can, try to at least wait until the snow plows and sanding/salting crews have done their work. All of us at some point are going to be put in the situation where we have to drive our new car in Dayton, OH on snow or ice covered roads.Winter driving tips to keep you safe on the road in your new or used car in Dayton, OH:
- Have good traction tires. All-season tires don’t always provide you with great snow traction, if you want good tires that perform the best in the winter you need to have winter tires.
- Have a clean windshield. Make sure your wipers and windshield washer system are performing adequately and don’t start driving until your windshield is entirely clear.
- Turn your air-conditioner on. Your air-conditioner combined with the fresh air option removes frost and condensation from the interior of you windows.
- Turn your headlights on. Having your headlights on makes you much more visible to other drivers so they won’t pull out in front of you. Also, make sure your headlights and taillights are clear of snow so other drivers can actually see you.
- Watch out for “black ice”. If the roads look slippery, they probably are. Test the traction on the roads with a slight brake tap or turn of the wheel to get a feel for the road condition.
