Winter Real Estate Safety Tips

5 Essential Winter Driving Tips


When heading out of Salt Lake, Holladay, Draper, Sandy or South Jordan, check the forecast.  Don't travel if snow and ice are expected unless it's absolutely necessary.  If you must travel, here are 5 tips to prevent accidents:

 

1.  Be prepared.

Check your windshield wipers and tires and replace if worn.  Bring a charged cell phone, shovel, blankets, sand or salt, ice scraper and flares if you're heading out on a long road trip.  Be sure to tell others about your travel plans.  Tire chains may be necessary in some areas.

 

2.  Drive slowly

Driving too fast for conditions is the top reason drivers lose control in winter driving conditions.

 

3.  Avoid skids

Use a light touch on brakes to avoid skidding.  If you begin to skid, ease off brakes and turn in the direction of the skid.

 

4.  Be alert

You can't always see the ice on the road.  That's why it's important to drive slowly and keep control of your vehicle.

 

5.  Use hazard lights if you're driving below the posted speed limit.
