ROAD THIS WINTER

The roads can be totally unpredictable at this time of the year. Here are our top 5 tips to prepare you for anything:

1. Drive slower

Decrease your speed and leave a larger distance between yourself and the cars in front of you so you don’t suddenly find yourself hitting the brakes.

2. Snow tires

While they don’t allow you to drive the same as you would in regular conditions, they do provide superior braking and better traction than an all-season tire.

3. Don’t drive fatigued or under the influence

Make sure you’re in good condition to drive. If you’re fatigued, or if you’ve had some spiked egg nog at the holiday party, put the keys away and take a cab.

4. Keep a safety kit in your trunk

Keep a kit full of all the essentials, including: a blanket, flashlight, small shovel, booster cables, first aid kit, a reflective piece of clothing etc. You can purchase an affordable kit at your favourite department store.

Make sure you have plenty of gas, at all times, as well as, oil, anti-freeze, and windshield washer fluid. Ensure that you take your car for regular maintenance twice a year.
