Safety Tips For Driving In Winter

Driving during the winter months is completely different than the rest of the year. Even the most experienced drivers can have difficulties in snow and ice. Kirmac Collision & Autoglass wants to prepare you and your loved ones with safety tips for driving this winter. We understand that the weather in Vancouver can quickly change and the roads can become dangerous. There are some steps you can take to ensure you are driving safely until spring.

Slow Your Speed

If there is snow and ice on the road, go slow. It’s as easy as that. Never go faster than necessary when the roads are in a dangerous condition. Take your time and you will get to your destination. Kirmac auto body shop wants to remind you, you do not need to go as fast as everyone else if you do not feel comfortable doing so. Go at the speed you are most comfortable with, especially if the road conditions are dicey. By taking your time, you will avoid going off the road, or being stuck in a snowbank or involved in an accident.

Prepare Your Car

Always ensure that your vehicle is road ready. To be ready for the road, that means your car is completely snow-free. Wipe down your car to confirm that no snow remains to obstruct your vision or fly off and cause an issue for other vehicles on the road. Snow on vehicles in motion is a road hazard and can be very dangerous in already poor road conditions. Also, we recommend completely scraping any ice off your windshield, windows, and back window to ensure optimal visibility. This will help you and all other drivers stay safe on the road.

Watch The Weather

One of the best ways to stay safe in winter weather is to avoid the bad weather. At Kirmac Collision & Autoglass, we recommend watching the weather to know when low temperatures may cause ice on the roads or if a snowstorm will be hitting your area. Avoid going out on the roads during bad weather whenever possible.
