But sometimes you need to hit the road, and when you do, follow some of these tips for safer driving.

  1. Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. You should allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you.
  2. Brake gently to avoid skidding. If your wheels start to lock up, ease off the brake.
  3. Don’t assume your vehicle can handle all conditions. Even four-wheel and front-wheel drive vehicles can encounter trouble on winter roads.

Also, make sure your tires are properly inflated and have enough tread, check your vehicles fluids, and always err on the side of caution when it comes to safety.
