Tips for driving in winter weather conditions

January 15, 2019

Maximize your visibility Take the time to scrape and clear your windows properly, both inside and out, before proceeding. Clean all your mirrors, lights and windshield wipers. Remove snow from the hood and roof so that it doesn’t blow or fall onto the windshield or rear window as you drive. Snow in the outside air vents or off of your boots on the floor will vapourize as the cab air temperature increases and may reform as frost on the inside of the cold windshield. Use the air conditioner, if equipped, as it will help to remove the moisture from the air. Find and keep traction Traction is what allows you to control your vehicle – starting, stopping or turning requires traction between your tires and… Continue reading Tips for driving in winter weather conditions
