Winter Weather Tips:
Stay safe during the cold months this year by making sure you’ve got these things taken care of before you get on the road.
Check the weather, road conditions and traffic.
Being short on time and speeding to make up the difference on roads that have been affected by winter weather can be dangerous. Allow yourself a lot of time to get to your destination and make sure you’ve taken a look at the route you’re taking before you leave, even if you have a GPS system.
Have your mechanic check your battery.
Battery power drops in cold weather. You don’t want to have your vehicle stuck in a parking lot somewhere when you’re supposed to be on the go. Having a mechanic check your battery to see if you might need a new one.
It’s difficult to control or stop your vehicle on a slick or snow-covered surface.
Make sure your tires have sufficient tread.
Look closely at your tires to make sure there’s at least 2/32 of an inch or greater on all tires. Little tread can make it that much harder to control your car on slick surfaces.
Check your tire pressure.
When the temperatures get lower, your tire pressure drops. Make sure your tires are filled according to your vehicle’s manufacturer-recommended pressure to keep yourself from slipping and sliding from poor tire pressure and slick surfaces.
Replace windshield wipers and check defrosters.
If your windshield wipers are old, it might be time to change them in the name of safety this winter season. You may also want to consider installing heavy-duty winter wipers if you live in an area that gets a lot of snow and ice.
