Weather Tidbits: Winter Driving Tips

This Weather Tidbits explores ways on how to drive safely during the winter. Check your tires but make sure you have adequate tread on the tires and check your tire pressure. Remove ice and snow, plus make sure to keep your car windows, mirrors and lights clear of snow and ice. When skidding, avoid accelerating and breaking too hard. If you start to skid, slowly lift off the accelerator and turn into the direction of the skid to regain control. Also, increase your following distance so you have more room to make a stop and keep your gas tank at least half full.
