Winter Driving Tips To Avoid A Connecticut Auto Accident
Winter weather conditions can make any ride nerve-wracking whether you are driving on an Interstate highway, parkway, back road, or side street. Winter weather can also contribute to Connecticut auto accidents. Following these winter driving tips could help keep you safe:
- If you warm up your vehicle, be sure to do it in an open area. Vehicle fumes are toxic.
- Make sure tires are properly inflated.
- If you use snow tires, all 4 tires should be snow tires. Do not mix tire types.
- Keep at least a half a tank of gas in your car to avoid a gas line freeze up.
- Avoid the use of your parking brake in rainy, snowy, or cold weather.
- If you are tired, avoid driving. Drowsy driving increases your risk for a Connecticut auto accident.
- Cruise control should not be used on wet surfaces.
- Wear your seat belt each time you get in the car.
