Erie Collision Offers Tips on Safe Winter Driving


Now is a good time to review these winter driving recommendations before driving your vehicle in cold, snowy and icy weather conditions.

North Tonawanda, NY (PRWEB) January 16, 2014

The winters in Western New York can see many elements, including: extreme cold, snow, ice, and freezing drizzle. Having a wealth of experience with both fixing vehicles and driving in winter weather conditions, Erie Collision is offering motorists a few safe driving tips when on the road this winter season.

Preparing for safe winter driving starts even before getting in the vehicle. Motorists should insure that all snow and ice is removed from a vehicle's windows, mirrors, roof, headlights, tail lights, hood and trunk before any travel begins. This not only maximizes their range of vision, but also helps other drivers to see their vehicle more easily on the road.

Secondly, quick-changing weather conditions can result in having to stop travel for a period of time. Drivers should properly prepare themselves for such stops by keeping warm clothing and extra water in their vehicle.

Motorists should also keep in mind that there are many individuals who do not like driving in winter conditions but who still must go about their daily lives. Therefore, when attempting to pass another vehicle in winter conditions, be mindful that some people are very anxious and nervous.

Snow plows are out on the roads as well and motorists should be mindful of them. Keep a distance of 50 to 100 feet from a snow plow truck whenever possible. Snow may come flying off of the truck and impede vision when too close. Many trucks have a salt tool in the back and when another vehicle follows too closely the road salt can damage the paint finish on that vehicle.

Remember to always drive slower and as safe as possible during harsh winter conditions.
