07 Nov Ready, or not, winter is coming
The days that separate us from big snowfalls are not that far away. Whether we like it or not, winter will soon take hold so why not prepare for it and avoid hassles and stress.
In addition to installing winter tires by December 1st, a complete inspection of your vehicle is required and, above all, don’t forget winter windshield wipers!
- Plenty of windshield washer fluid
- A winter first aid kit
- A cell phone always charged while you travel
Here are the main points to consider if you want to keep you and others safe this winter.
- You should always clear snow from your vehicle before hitting the road. Otherwise, you are dangerous both to yourself and to others.
- Consider reducing your speed when weather conditions are bad and visibility is reduced.
In conclusion, if you have the choice, opt for public transportation or postpone your trip.
One last piece of advice: always let someone know your destination and the expected time of your arrival.
