If the recent snow storms in
are any indication, winter weather will be heading our way before too long. Idealease provides some useful guidelines for keeping the roads safe during the cold months: Connecticut
1. Proper tire care is vital for safe driving in icy conditions. Tires should always be properly inflated with ample tread, and this is especially true in the winter. Steering can be tricky when there’s ice on the road, and well-maintained tires on the steer axel add invaluable control. Idealease also recommends traction tires on the drive axels.
2. Driving a rig with its lights on during the day increases its visibility to motorists.
3. Cruise control should never be used on snowy or icy roads.
4. Driving too fast is the number one cause of winter accidents, so take it slow.
5. Don’t “pump” ABS brakes.
