Safe Driving on Winter Roads Starts with Vehicle Brakes and Tires
Winter weather can bring more than misery when it comes to safe driving in West Virginia. As temperatures drop and freeze, light rain can turn wet roads into black ice in a flash. While winter weather and freezing may sometimes be unpredictable, being safe on the road starts with your vehicle.
Checking on brakes and tires is an essential part of winter driving and accident prevention. Regular checks, of course, are important throughout the year. Winter hazards, though, can really put them to the test. And it is the time of year when you least want to be stranded out in the cold.
Road and Winter Emergency Vehicle Kits
It is a good time to talk with fellow drivers and passengers about winter driving habits and road safety. The National Safety Council suggests including the following items in your vehicle emergency kit. The items in bold are especially important for winter emergencies:
