In the winter you will want to be aware of the weather you are driving in or driving into. Doing so will help you be prepared. If the weather is less than ideal, chances are the roads will be wet and slick. This cans decrease the safety when you drive. So make sure to slow down when driving. By driving at a speed that you are comfortable at, you will be able to decrease your chance of an accident. Also remember to leave plenty of space between you and the vehicle in front of you. If that vehicle applies the brakes or changes lanes quickly, you will want extra time and space to react to it.
Windshield wipers and the visibility
The best way to keep proper visibility is to check the windshield wipers of the vehicle. If there are any issues or damage to the wipers, make sure that they are replaced as soon as possible. You will want to make sure that they clear away the windshield so you can see properly. If you hear the wipers vibrating against the windshield, then they have worn out. If you are not sure what type of wipers to get, or how to replace them, make sure that you contact us. We can advise you on the right wipers or even install them for you. Also check the rear wiper as well.
winter weather and the lights
Check the headlights and taillights to ensure they are working correctly. If a light is dim or dull, this can increase the chance of an accident to happen. Not only do the lights help you to see, but they help others to see you as well. If a blinker is no longer working, you will want to have inspected immediately. If a fuse is out, make sure that it is replaced quickly, so that way other drivers will know what direction you plan on turning.
