With all the horrible weather we’ve had already this year, you probably have driving in snow down to an art by now, but here’s a short list of a few tips of how to drive in snow just as a short refresher. It’s always good to occasionally look through a list of these tips to get a good idea of what we all can do to better keep ourselves and everyone else on the roads around Pittsfiled, North Adams, and Springfield as safe as possible during these harsh winter months.
- Get Winter Tires – while the season may be over halfway through (we hope), skidding along the roads is no joke. Getting snow tires may help you grip the slick pavement better.
- Drive Slowly – getting to work or practice on time is not a fair exchange for your safety and the safety of others on the road.
- Give yourself plenty of time to stop – try to stop at least a full car’s length behind the car in front of you. This way, even if you do skid some, you have some room to give before you hit them.
Just follow these 3 tips for winter driving and hopefully it will keep you safe until spring. In the meantime, check out our four-wheel-drive cars at Haddad Toyota to help ensure that you will stay safe on the snowy roads out there.
