In many areas of the country, inclement weather can occur year-round. Regardless of where and when you drive, heed these safety precautions for bad weather driving!

 

  • Slow down. Put extra distance between your vehicle and the cars ahead of you.
  • Wear your seat belt at all times and make sure all children ages 12 and under are seated in the back seat.
  • Keep your headlights, taillights and windshield clean, and your wipers in good condition.
  • Keep your headlights on while driving. Don’t use your brights because snow and fog can reflect back into your eyes.
  • In an emergency situation, don’t slam on the brakes. The wheels could lock, causing you to skid.
  • If your car does start to slide on a frosty road, turn your wheels into the direction of the slide, and then straighten out.
  • Be extra cautious when driving over bridges and dips in the road. They could present dangerous “black ice” driving conditions.
