Safe Driving this Winter

Driving safe requires you to change some habits. As the weather becomes less than ideal, make sure to slow down. You will want to drive at a speed that you are comfortable at. Also remember to never use cruise control when driving on slick roads. Even if it is a little covered, you will want to turn the cruise control off. Remember to be aware of the traffic around you as you drive as well. This will help you determine the road conditions based on the speed they are driving. If traffic is slowing down, you should be as well.

Safe Driving tips

Remember in order to stay safe, you should check the weather and road conditions before driving out in it. This way you will know what you may be driving into. Also make sure to look ahead at the future forecast. Doing so will help you be aware of the weather as you drive back. Make sure to leave in plenty of time so you do not feel rushed. Also remember to extend the space between you and the vehicle in front of you. If the weather is less than ideal, make sure to double or triple the space. This way you will have enough time and distance to adjust to the vehicle in front of you.


Keep the vehicle safe by bringing it in for regular maintenance inspections. Anytime you notice something out of the norm with it, make sure to contact us. Having a problem looked at as soon as you notice it is important. This will help you avoid further damage to that part or other ones. It will reduce a costly repair bill in the future as well. If you are not sure how often to bring the vehicle in, contact us. We can set up a schedule for you to follow. Doing so will help keep the vehicle safe and reliable on the roads.
