Plan Your Travel Route

Before you head off on a drive in risky weather, plan your travel route. Check the weather, road conditions, and traffic before you leave. Don’t rush, and allow plenty of time to get to your destination to avoid causing an accident. You should also let others know your anticipated arrival time and your travel route.

Don’t Use Cruise Control When Driving On Slippery Surfaces

A good rule of thumb is to be in complete control of your vehicle when driving in hazardous conditions, so avoid using cruise control when driving on slippery surfaces.

Drive Slowly

When it’s slippery and difficult to steer your vehicle, you’ll need to drive slowly. Give yourself lots of time to be where you need to be so you don’t rush and speed, which could cause an accident.

Check Your Tires

In addition to getting your vehicle serviced at our service center, we also recommend stopping in to have your tires checked and replaced if necessary. In the winter, you can also opt for winter tires, which allow for more grip on those slippery roads.
