Safety Tips for Winter Driving

Helping Charlotte drivers and passengers stay safe when they're on the go is one of our top goals here at Hendrick MINI. The winter can cause hazardous driving conditions. If you're prepared, then you increase your chances of safe travels.

Keep a supply kit in your vehicle in case you get stuck. Helpful items to include are batteries, a flashlight, food, water, medical supplies, blankets, and warm clothing. Always give yourself more following room from the vehicle ahead, and accelerate and brake slowly. Don't use cruise control on icy surfaces, and check your tires regularly to ensure they are inflated properly.

Before you leave on long trips, check the weather and let someone know when you're planning on getting to your destination. If your vehicle gets hung up in the snow, then stay with your vehicle. Your car provides you with temporary shelter. You can conserve fuel by only running the engine to remove the chill until emergency services arrives.
