Plan for the worst and everything else will be a pleasant surprise. While we’re not suggesting you drive every day of the winter expecting to get stranded in a blizzard, there are quite a few things you can do to ensure you fare just fine in the event of a snowstorm. The Huffington Post shared some of these winter driving tips.
Freezing Anti-Freeze: Make absolutely sure that the type of anti-freeze that you use is rated for the lowest temperatures in your area.
Going Blind: Top off your windshield wiping fluid as often as you can. With salt trucks everywhere, the moisture and salt makes a terrible mix for visibility.
Let There Be Light: A flashlight is absolutely essential. Visibility can be reduced dramatically during a blizzard, especially at night. In case of a breakdown, you may need to use the flashlight for a signal.
Who’s Hungry…and Cold: Stash some food in your ride, specifically things that keep well like jerky or peanut butter. Also, throw some blankets in your car as well as extra gloves and a hat.
