Driving Tips for Winter Travel Places

Winter driving can be very dangerous due to poor road conditions or reduced visibility due to snow or heavy rain. During these times, travel is difficult if not dangerous, and is often not recommended. However, many people are still venturing outside and don’t know what they will encounter. This is why preparing properly is a must – it may save your life during Global travel.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), the leading cause of death during winter storms is transportation accidents. Being prepared for the winter season and knowing how to act if stranded or lost on the road are the keys to safe winter travel.

Preferably before winter. Or at least before the trip, check your car to make sure it’s ready for the road conditions. You can do it yourself or take it to a qualified mechanic. Check the battery, wipers and fluids, thermostat, brakes, ignition system, antifreeze, exhaust system, lights, oil level (remember to have winter oil), heater and defrosters. Make sure everything is turned on to keep you safe throughout cold weather or during your flight.

Don’t forget to check the tyres. Make sure the tires have the proper tread. All-weather radial engines are usually suitable for most winter conditions. However, some jurisdictions require that to drive on their roads, vehicles must be equipped with chains or snow tires with studs. Keep at least half a tank of gas in the car during the winter.
