Winter weather means drivers should slow down, be aware of conditions The holiday season is upon us -- one of the busiest times of year to be on the road. More traffm on the road means there's more potential for an accident to occur, especially during the winter months, when weather is unpredictable. Those who ffmd themselves traveling over the hills and through the woods to be with friends and family this holiday season would do well to rememberothese tips for a safer journey home. Inspect tires Properly inflated traction tires reduce the risk of skidding and improve braking. Some service centers offer a free pretrip safety check to help drivers gear up for the cold, wet, winter driving conditions. Have an expert check your tires' air pressure and tread depth and do a visual alignment check. He or she can also check your brakes, shocks and battery. Understand options The decision between studded and winter tires comes down to customers' safety needs, commute and driving habits. Winter traction tires are specifically designed to provide the extra traction, braking and handling drivers need to confidently drive on snow and ice. In temperatures below 45 degrees, winter tires can provide 25 to 50 percent more traction than all-season tires. Studded tires offer additional traction in more treacherous winter driving conditions. For those who plan to drive in packed snow and slush, chains might be a good alternative. Know before you go Pay attention to local weather and road condition advisories. Plan routes ahead of time. Before leaving, search for announcements about accidents, road closures and travel advisories. For up-to-date road conditions, visit lesschwab.com/resources/ro ad-conditions. Also, share your route with someone in case of an accident. Allow extra time Slow down. Whether cornering, stopping, accelerating or driving on a straightaway, slowing down is the key to safe winter driving. Allow more space between vehicles. And avoid using cruise control on ice, snow or extremely wet roads. ffroads are covered with snow or ice, adjust your schedule to reflect the increased driving time. Be ready for the unexpected Be prepared for anything. A winter accident could leave a driver stuck on the side of the road. Packing the car with a few essentials will help maintain safety and readiness for whatever conditions pop up on the trip. Pack snacks, water bottles, an ice scraper, flares, chains, a flashlight, blankets and a roadside safety kit. And always carry a cellphone. Inclement weather can, on occasion, send drivers off-route. Make sure to have plenty of fuel to safely get to your destination. Keeping the tank as full as possible will minimize condensation, providing the maximum advantage in case of trouble. As a rule of thumb, maintain at least a half-tank of gas.
