If you live somewhere that sees plenty of snowy winter weather each year, like here in Freehold, then you know that staying safe on the winter roads and caring for your vehicle can be tricky. We’ve put together a few winter driving tips to help you stay safe this season.
Monitor your tires
Your tires are the only point of contact between your vehicle and the road. As such, it’s extremely important to make sure they’re always properly inflated and aligned, especially in winter. Be sure to keep an eye on your tire tread and consider getting a set of winter tires if your tires’ traction begins to wear.
Fill up frequently
Breaking down on the side of the road is inconvenient year-round, but in the winter, it can be especially dangerous and troublesome. Make sure your gas tank always has a buffer so you don’t end up on the side of the road in freezing temperatures.
Don’t drive tired
Driving while fatigued is always dangerous, but the risk is only increased when driving in winter weather. If you aren’t properly rested, it’s usually best not to drive at all until you can get some sleep.
