If one of these drivers gets caught in bad weather on the road, they may not be able to handle their car as well as they usually do, especially if they do not adjust their driving accordingly. This is why being a defensive driver at all times is important, but it is most imperative in inclement weather. Driving conditions are not stable when bad weather is involved, so take the right steps to make sure you are as safe as possible. If you can avoid driving in nasty weather, please do so.
If you live in one of the northern states that get snow regularly, you may already be familiar with how to be safe on icy and snowy roads. The good thing about living in a state that is used to snow is that your roads will likely be salted and de-iced on a regular basis, so you will not have to worry too much about driving in bad conditions. You also probably already have snow tires on your car. For those of us who do not live in a snowy state, you should still be aware of how to drive in icy conditions because there may come a day when you have to drive in it. For some reason, your state may get a freeze one winter and you will be stuck at home unable to drive, even if it is necessary for you to go out. Being prepared for all types of driving emergencies is very important for everyone.
There are some very good tips to keep in mind when you are driving at any point in time, but most especially when the weather is really bad. Be sure you are always safe on the road, and you will likely be able to avoid accidents that could cause your car insurance rate to skyrocket. Keep the following tips in mind:
Keep your headlights functional and clean, and use them as needed.
Drive slower on slippery roads, especially when any kind of precipitation is falling. Your braking time increases on wet roads, so driving slower will give you a chance to brake at the necessary moment.
Do not follow other cars too closely. This goes hand in hand with driving slower. There is no need to be so close to other drivers in any weather, good or bad.
Keep your car up to date on the following: windshield wipers and fluid, battery, tires, antifreeze, and the aforementioned headlights.
Try to avoid changing lanes unless absolutely necessary.
Keep your gas tank full. This is important for all emergency situations that may arise, but especially if you live in a place where your fuel lines could freeze.
