Make Sure Your Car Is Ready for Winter

Posted on by Defensive Driving | in Rules of the Road: Driving Tips

It was an extremely hot summer in many parts of the country but fall has arrived and so too have cooler temperatures. However, those cooler temps are going to get even colder with winter just around the corner whether you’re ready for it or not. However, you do need to make sure that your car is ready for winter, especially if you live in an area that’s going to experience snow and ice. That kind of precipitation can make driving safely a bit of a challenge, even for people who have experience driving in those conditions.

One of the first things you’ll want to take a look at before winter hits is the tread on your tires. While you never want to push your luck if you need new tires, that’s even truer when you’re facing a few months of icy road conditions. If you’re not able to judge yourself how much life is left on your tires, ask someone that can. You might have to dip into your savings to invest in new tires but if it prevents you from getting into an accident, it’ll be worth it.

You’ll also want to get all of your fluids, such as antifreeze, checked before the onset of winter. It’s still a few months out but it’s better to take care of these things now rather than when it’s too late. Also check to make sure that your emergency kit includes winter clothing such as gloves and hats in case you find yourself broken down and need to stay warm.
