NHTSA's Winter Driving Tips

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is currently publicizing their annual winter driving safety campaign. Their "Focus on Safety- Winter Driving" campaign is all about preparation before driving and safety behind the wheel. Drivers in Asheville and the surrounding areas could face a variety of different wintry weather conditions this season. From ice and sleet to blizzard-like storms, Asheville motorists need to be prepared for anything.

Winter Car Prep

Winter car preparation is a vital part of getting safely to your destinations this winter. It's essential to check your battery, antifreeze, heaters and defrosters before winter weather comes to town. Consider getting wiper blades designed particularly for winter weather. They can greatly improve visibility in bad weather. Most importantly, make sure your tires are equipped to handle the impending weather. It's also a good idea to have the brakes checked during your next oil change or tune up.

When in Doubt, Stay Off The Roadways 

If possible, the NHTSA always recommends staying off the roads in really bad weather. If you do have to go out in a snow or ice storm, make sure to allow yourself plenty of time to get safely to your destination. You don't want to be in a hurry when you're driving through bad winter weather. Listed below are some of the NHTSA's Winter Driving Safety Tips.

Winter Driving Safety Tips

·     Clear snow and ice from all windows, windshields and lights prior to driving.

·     Buckle up before every trip, no matter how far you're going.

·     Always drive slowly in poor weather.

·     Never drive distracted.

·     Pay attention to the road.

·     Know your brakes before you drive in poor weather.
