LDS Preparedness 101: Winter Driving Safety Tips

Click now to get PREPARED!

Winter Driving Safety Tips
Winter Driving Requires More Than Just Being Attentive
There are certain tips that you should keep in mind to make your winter driving as safe as possible. Winter driving has potential challenges that are not present during any other time of the year, and being mindful of these problems can help you get to your destination safely.

Now Is Not The Time To Speed
Winter road conditions can make winter driving particularly challenging at times. It is important to obey all posted speed limits, but in the winter months sometimes treacherous road conditions can cause you to need to drive slower than the posted speed limit. Always allow yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. Leave a little earlier in order to compensate for weather delays.
Fill It Up
During the winter months, particularly if you live in a cold climate, it is important to always have at least a half gallon of gas in your car. Try not to let your gas drop below a half tank. If temperatures drop too low and you don’t have enough gas in the car, the gas line can freeze, disabling your vehicle until things warm up again.
Tires Are Critical
If you haven’t already done so, make sure you take a look at your vehicle’s tires. Make sure that they are not worn too low. Winter driving requires that your tires have enough tread for you to be able to handle icy roadways.
Know When To Stay Home
When roads are not navigable due to icy road conditions, stay at home if at all possible. Also make sure you know your limitations. Winter driving requires a higher degree of skill. Try to be realistic about whether or not you can safely navigate the roads in icy conditions. If you can’t, then stay at home or ask someone to bring you to where you need to be.
What To Do If You Do Break Down
In the event that you do break down during the winter time or have a car accident, put on your emergency flashers so you will be visible to other motorists. Also put on the lights inside your car so that passing motorists are aware that someone is in the vehicle.
Don’t forget to keep extra coats, warm clothing, and bottled water and nonperishable foods in your car. You don’t have to avoid winter driving completely; you just have to be prepared.
