Tips to Safely Navigate Winter Roads

Driving in the winter can be scary and cause anxiety, especially when it snows and freezes. Winter weather is unavoidable, but being in control and prepared for the weather can give you peace of mind when driving treacherous roads.

Remember to remain calm and follow these three tips when the snow hits the roads:

  1. Steering: steer rather than brake at speeds above 25 mph. In slick conditions, sudden braking can lead to loss of control of the vehicle.
  2. Braking: Never pound on the breaks in slippery weather; this could lock up your breaks and cause skids.
  3. Skids: If you encounter a skid, remain calm and regain control of your vehicle by steering in the direction you want the front of your vehicle to go and wait for your wheels to gain traction.

Pay special attention on the roadways and always wear a seat belt; it’s your best safety defense against injury. In the event you do get into an accident, auto insurance will help cover the damage costs. To learn more, visit AssuredPartners Personal Insurance.
