Five Tips to Avoid the Dangers of Winter Driving

Severe winter weather can be frightening and dangerous for drivers of all ages. Ice, snow and untreated roads can make even short trips treacherous. What is worse, many drivers endanger others on the road because they do not exercise proper care when encountering bad weather.

But don’t cancel your wintertime travel plans just yet. Whether you are staying in Middlesex County or traveling outside of Massachusetts, here are some easy things that you can do to help avoid motor vehicle accidents and stay safe while driving during the winter season.

Top Five Winter Driving Tips

  • Slow down: on slick, ice-covered roads, stopping, accelerating and turning all take more time than on dry pavement. Allow yourself plenty of time and space to maneuver.
  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly: applying the gas slowly is the best way to maintain traction and avoid skids.
  • Avoid driving distracted: leave your phone in your pocket or purse, only adjust the GPS when stopped and adjust the radio sparingly.
  • Make sure that your car is in working order: make certain that oil and coolant are at proper levels and that your tires are properly inflated.
  • Buckle up: wearing a seatbelt greatly reduces the risk of serious injury in a car accident.
