Winter Driving

Winter driving is stressful at times, which can lead to poor driving decisions and potential accidents. You can reduce the associated risks by planning ahead and having a positive attitude. Keep the following safety tips in mind this winter to help keep you and your passengers safe:

  • Slow down and drive per the weather conditions; leave plenty of room between you and the next vehicle so you can avoid collisions.
  • Have your cellphone charged up so you can contact emergency services or loved ones should the need arise.
  • Do not talk or text on your cellphone while driving – it’s unsafe and against the law!
  • Plan your route in advance and check traffic reports; don’t rush and be sure to allow for extra travel time.
  • Keep your fuel tank relatively full if you are travelling any distance to ensure you will have enough fuel should you encounter traffic delays due to the weather.
  • Keep your windshield fluid topped up and have a snow brush/ice scraper with you should the weather conditions change as you shop.
  • Prepare or purchase an emergency car kit for each vehicle you own.
