The Farmer’s Almanac has this 2014-2015 winter season to be one of the worst winters in a while and that means vehicle drivers need to beware and prepared for anything. With the winter weather comes cold temperatures, snow, ice and blizzardy conditions… All of which are nightmares to the average car driver. Accidents can happen, but if a vehicle owner can formulate a plan to battle Mother Nature’s worst, they can come out relatively unscathed.
If you live in the areas that can be affected most by winter, you have seen it all. Fish tails, black ice, and snow drifts. Just getting your car out of the driveway can be a challenge in itself.
So if you are aware of what elements can come your way this winter, you can avoid any mishaps that might damage your vehicle. No owner wants dents, scratches and collisions when they can make the necessary adjustments to avoid them.
Here are some quick vehicle tips to use as preparation for winter:
- Acquire Snow Tires – A solid set of snow tires can make driving down the road or highway a breeze in winter. Better traction defense on your vehicle can prevent sliding into another driver.
- Proper Car Snow Brush – It might be chilly outside, but when your car is covered in ice, one of these will save you money. If you don’t de-ice or brush off the snow your vehicle, vision can be impaired and that leads to accidents.
- Windshield Wipers – Make sure that you have a quality windshield wiper to cut through the snow and sleet that comes at you.
- Sand Bags – If you have a rear-wheel drive vehicle tossing in a sand bag into the trunk of your car can help with traction and can double as a way to get out of a jam when you are stuck in the snow.
