A road made wet by ice and snow is not just a driving inconvenience, but also a potential safety hazard. This winter, as you continue to drive through hazardous conditions in Indiana, pay attention to the road and make sure that you and your car are equipped to deal with emergencies. The American Auto Association offers many tips for drivers to help reduce the risk of being involved in an auto accident this winter season.
Remember that driving in winter is especially challenging. It is no time to drive while fatigued. The changing visibility and weather conditions mean that motorists are much more likely to feel tired, leading to distraction and drowsiness while driving. This is potentially hazardous when you’re driving in an already very challenging environment.
The best defense against an accident in winter is adequately inflated tires. Before a trip, make sure that your tires are properly set at the right pressure, and avoid combining radial tires with other types of tires.
