NC Personal Injury Lawyers Offer 3 Tips for Safer Winter Driving, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Drivers across the country are facing an unprecedented winter, with record lows and massive snowfall making roads even more hazardous. Low visibility and slick road conditions can make it difficult to respond to sudden changes in traffic and other drivers, who may lose control of their vehicles. To protect you and your family this winter, the personal injury lawyers at Nagle & Associates, PA have some tips for driving safely in inclement weather.

3 Tips for Driving Safely in the Winter

1. Have Your Vehicle Checked

A well-functioning vehicle is your first line of defense against wintertime accidents. When temperatures begin to drop, have your car inspected by an experienced mechanic who will check the tires, refill the coolant, and examine the brakes to ensure that your vehicle is able to respond in adverse weather conditions.

2. Leave Additional Space Between Vehicles

If an accident occurs, leaving extra space between yourself and the vehicle ahead of you will give you time to react and avoid crashing your car too.

3. Slow Down

Speed limits are based on how safely roads can be navigated in good weather, without factoring in ice or snow. Driving even a few miles per hour slower than normal can help you retain control of your vehicle and prevent accidents that might be unavoidable at higher speeds.
