We all tend to travel a lot during this time of year, so to ensure your safety and the safety of those around you on the road here are a few winter weather driving tips thanks to the Indiana Department of Transportation.
- Reduce Speeds – No one should drive as fast as you normally would during the summer because, as long as the temperature is below freezing, ice is possible at any time.
- Keep a Safe Distance – With ice and snow your stop time increases, so keep a safer distance during the winter weather to ensure your safety and the safety of the drivers around you.
- Stay Alert – Avoid all distractions on the road especially during the winter weather. Be on the look out for drivers who may not be driving safely and stay defensive.
