It’s that time when we are all faced with winter driving conditions and the rush of the Holidays. Any time of year can be full of potential dangers on the road, but right now requires your attention to the road.
We all know how the first snow falls can affect driving ability. No matter how safe a driver you are, there are others who are not. Some may be young first-time drivers, distracted drivers, those who forget that one needs to slow down and give everyone room and of course drivers who are determined to get somewhere fast.
Keep your eyes open and pay attention to what is going on around you. Another hazard is wild animals entering the roadway. Deer, especially can bound into the road and then be startled and blinded by headlights causing them to freeze in mid-stride right in front of you.
Keeping Safe On The Roads
Collision repair in Ithaca certainly skyrockets during the winter months due to slipping and sliding accidents and animal collisions. The holidays bring more people out on the road at later hours and many are rushing to get their shopping done or attend functions with friends or family.
Unfortunately, in the rush to get places, people are distracted with their own thoughts, lists, and concerns over everything. You need to be attentive and careful as you go about your business and travelling.
Besides keeping your eyes on the road and reducing or eliminating distractions, keeping your vehicle in good condition is a must. Please keep snow off your vehicles and windows. Leaving even small amounts of snow can affect your vision and block areas from view. Leaving large amounts of snow on your roof can cause road hazards for other drivers. Certainly you have traveled behind other drivers in snow covered vehicles and had the snow fly off and land on your windshield. Very dangerous and you do not want to cause another driver to lose control.
Keep your headlights clear and cleaned off, along with your directionals and taillights. Safety is always the primary concern. Make sure your tires are up to the task of winter driving. Winter snow tires and/or studs may be a good choice.
