Driving in snowAccidents tend to increase at this time of year, but it is possible to take steps that lower the likelihood of being involved in a crash. Consider the following tips for preparing your car for safe winter driving.

Headlights

Visibility is reduced during a snow storm. Winter is also a time of shorter days, meaning more frequent driving in darkness. Headlights help the driver see and also help the vehicle be seen by others. This is important for keeping pedestrians and other drivers safe. As headlights age, their light output reduces, meaning they become dimmer. Consider replacing or upgrading your bulbs every two years. Also, be sure to clear the snow off the headlights when you are clearing your windshield. 

Windshield Wiper Blades

Often drivers take windshield wiper blades for granted. However, if they fail, the results can be catastrophic. Imagine driving down the highway during a storm and having a windshield wiper fly off of the car. Or the snow and ice are not cleared by an attached blade because it no longer properly contacts the windshield. Now it is impossible to see anything. How would you see to get off an exit or even just simply pull the vehicle off the road? Windshield wiper blades wear with time and should be replaced. If you don't remember the last time you replaced your windshield wiper blades, consider doing it before the snow falls.

Brakes and Tire Tread

When the road is wet or icy, it is important to have good traction and the ability to brake. Consider having a professional check the quality of the tread on your tires and if your brakes are still working satisfactorily. If you find either of these items is not at adequate performance level, look into having that rectified before the worst of winter.

Preparing your car for winter is necessary to ensure you have safe travels in the upcoming months. Take the time to investigate the headlights, windshield wiper blades, brakes and tire tread before winter arrives.
