With winter weather in full swing, and the official start of winter tomorrow, it’s likely that we’re are going to see some snow on the ground over the next few months. The snow and ice can pose all sorts of safety risks, especially when it comes to driving in this wintry weather.

If it’s at all possible, it’s best to avoid driving when there is snow or ice on the ground. Unfortunately, that’s just not possible for many of us who have jobs and other priorities we have to get to. So, if you do find yourself having to drive in that nasty winter weather, be sure to follow these safe driving tips from US News:

  • Speeding is never a good idea, but especially not when there is snow or ice on the ground. In fact, you want to be extra safe and go under the speed limit in these conditions.
  • Use your brakes wisely. When there is ice on the ground, it usually takes about twice as long to brake as it does in normal conditions. Also, try to avoid coming to a complete stop on ice and snow; this can lead to you getting stuck.
  • If you live in an area that gets large amounts of snow each year, it’s a good idea to invest in snow tires to help you get around. If nothing else, at least make sure that your tires are in good condition before winter weather hits.
  • Make sure that your headlights and clean and in working order before you head out in the snow. When you are on the road, keep your headlights on to help you see other drivers and to help them see you.
