During the fall and winter seasons, obstacles such as rain, wildlife, darkness, snow and ice can make driving extremely dangerous. As a result, you should take some steps to prepare your vehicle to drive in adverse conditions:
- Make sure that your vehicle’s fluids have been changed recently, and that its battery is in good condition.
- Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle. This kit should include an ice scraper, flashlight, radio, blanket and first-aid kit.
- Check the tire pressure on all of your tires regularly. Cold air can cause your tire’s air pressure to decrease to dangerous levels.
- Consider changing your tires to a set that can better handle wet, snowy or icy conditions.
Always remember to check the weather forecast before you drive. If a severe storm is on the way, either stay at home or tell a family member where you’re going and how long you’ll be there.
