Tips for Winter Driving

Driving Tips and Car Tips for Safe Winter Driving

Driving in winter weather can always be a challenge, but keeping your vehicle in good condition can help ensure you and your family have a safe winter holiday season. These are some tips on how to ensure your vehicle is properly checked-up and winterized before the snow hits the ground!

Below are a few tips we hope you will find useful:

  1. Check your windshield wiper blades - verify that your wipers are in good condition. We also advise you to buy wipers specifically intended for winter use.
  2. Have your tires changed to specific winter tires - these have better traction which helps while driving in potential snowy and icy conditions.
  3. Avoid driving in a rush - make sure you give yourself extra time to get to where you need to go; especially when weather is bad.
  4. Regularly remove snow and ice from your vehicle.
  5. Do not use your car's cruise control feature during bad weather.
  6. Keep a safe following distance - it may take longer to stop on a slippery road so make sure to keep a distance of at least four second between you and the car ahead.
  7. Check all signal lights, head lights and tail lights and make sure they are functional and aimed correctly.
  8. Make sure your brakes are functioning correctly - you can bring your car to our Kingsway Honda and we will examine your brakes. We will make sure they are in perfect shape for winter!
  9. Slow down to avoid skidding - avoid suddenly braking, turning and changing lanes.
  10. Get your car ready with a full check-up to ensure the battery, brakes, and cooling and heating system are in top shape.
