2014 has just begun, and in many areas of the country, it’s begun cold and snowy. In fact, parts of the northeast recently experienced the coldest temperatures in 10 years, combined with snow and ice—making for very hazardous driving conditions.
According to these winter driving safety tips, “the best advice for driving in bad winter weather is not to drive at all,” but let’s face it, that is often not an option. Sometimes work, school, and life won’t wait for the snow to pass.
There are many things that can go wrong when driving on icy roads when you least expect it. Imagine you are approaching a crowded intersection and when you press your foot on the brake pedal and nothing happens and your vehicle doesn’t stop, it just heads straight for other cars that are crossing. Or, you are driving slowly down an icy hill, careening towards trees, or driving up a hill, when you start sliding backwards. Those examples can leave you with a headache! So what are your best options for getting control of your vehicle in these different scenarios? How can you avoid disaster?
The number one thing, of course, is to not go too fast and take your time when going places. Other tips provided by this site include going easy on the brakes, turning your wheels in the direction that the rear end of the car is sliding, and to avoid pulling alongside of the road as it can cause passing drivers to brake and lose control and putting the lives of everyone involved in danger. If it is an emergency and someone is in immediate danger then the best thing you could do is contact the police. They are trained for those types of situations and it doesn’t put you at risk.
What else can help? Good, high quality tire chains. RUD Compact GRIP Tire Chains provide traction for cars, mini vans, and light trucks, offering further peace of mind in bad conditions. Their durable diamond design is compact fitting, easy to connect, and easy to tighten, and they can be used on both front and rear wheel drive vehicles.
When it comes to driving in winter weather, some things are unavoidable. However, having the right equipment for your car, and staying calm, alert, and cautious, will increase your chances of staying safe exponentially. So, put your mind at ease by being prepared with our RUD Compact Tire Chains so you don’t have to worry about what may happen when you press that foot on the brake!
