Weather Safety Tips
- Drive a little slower(We all know this but we still forget time to time) : During any bad weather containing ice, snow, or lower visibility, it is always best to go about your route a bit slower than normal. This increases the time you have to avoid a bad situation as well as decrease the chance of slipping in ice or snow.
- Turn into a Slide– When your vehicle starts to veer of the road in icy conditions, don’t jam the brake or turn the other direction (unless you want to call us for auto repair). You want to turn your steering wheel in the direction of the skid. This works because when you lose traction, turning into the skid enables your wheels to grab the first high traction segment of the road.
- Don’t Use Your Brakes When Executing Turns: Applying gentle breaking is the way to go when you are in hazardous slipping weather conditions. This includes torrential rains, snow, and ice. Any motion that rapidly slows the vehicle down can cause slipping.
- Weather Proof Your Car: Getting the basic wax coating is a great place to start but always be sure to plan your next move when hail starts to rain down. Covering your car with a blanket or other covering can help prevent dents, scratches, or other hail related repairs. However, seeking cover is always the best plan whether in a garage or on the leeward side of the on coming storm on the side of a building.
