During the winter months roads tend to be more crowded and at times icy. Therefore drivers must be alert at all times and extra cautious during winter storms.
To best stay safe and avoid accidents this winter one should accelerate and decelerate much slower than one would normally and generally drive slower. Also when driving one should stay an extra eight to ten seconds behind any car that is in front of them.
When driving up a hill that might have ice built up make sure not to accelerate too fast in the middle of the climb and make sure not to stop mid-climb either. The best method for driving up an icy hill would be to approach the hill at a steady pace which you maintain until the top has been reached.
Above all if the conditions are too dangerous do not attempt to drive your car. If you hear slush underneath your tires that means you have traction in the snow but if you do not hear anything you could likely be driving on ice and should slow down immediately to avoid any danger.
Also consult a news outlet such as the radio or television for road condition updates before leaving home. Moreover you can also check your GPS mapping system if you have access to one.
Make sure to also stay off your mobile phone as much as possible during the winter to ensure maximum security for you and your family. If you have any automobile security questions or concerns make sure to contact the automobile security experts at C & S Lock & Security!
