Play It Safe On Winter Roads

Car trouble is never fun, especially if your car if full of kids. So play it safe this winter by following these tips for safe driving in winter conditions.

 

Maintain Your Car: Check the battery, tire tread and windshield wipers. Keep your windows clear, put no-freeze fluid in the washer reservoir and check your antifreeze.

 

Have key items on hand: Keep a flashlight, jumper cables, abrasive material (sand, kitty litter, even floor mats), shovel, snow brush and ice scraper, warning devices (like flares) and

blankets. For long trips, add food and water, medication and cell phone.

 

Stopped or stalled? Stay in your car, put bright markers on antenna or windows and shine dome light. If you run your car, clear exhaust pipe and run it just enough to stay warm.

 

Plan Your route: Allow plenty of time. Check the forecast and adjust your departure to avoid serious weather, if possible. Be familiar with the directions and let others know your route and arrival time.

 

Practice safe snow driving:

  • Practice. During the daylight, rehearse maneuvers slowly on ice or snow in an empty lot.
  • Drive slowly; accelerate, decelerate and turn slowly.
  • Steer into a skid.
  • Know what your brakes will do: stomp on anti lock brakes, pump on non-anti lock brakes.
  • Increase your stopping distances.
  • Don't stop if you can avoid it.
  • Especially don't stop going up a hill. Get some inertia on a flat road before you take on a hill and don't power up a hill. Applying extra gas will start your wheels spinning.
  • Don't idle for a long time with the windows up or in an enclosed space.
  • Stay home. If you really don't have to go out, don't.
