Preparing for Cold Weather Driving By Atlantic/Smith, Cropper & Deeley 11/15/2016 During the fall and winter seasons, obstacles such as rain, wildlife, darkness, snow and ice can make driving extremely dangerous. As a result, you should take some steps to prepare your vehicle to drive in adverse conditions: Make sure that your vehicle’s fluids have been changed recently, and that its battery is in good condition. Keep an emergency kit in your vehicle. This kit should include an ice scraper, flashlight, radio, blanket and first-aid kit. Check the tire pressure on all of your tires regularly. Cold air can cause your tire’s air pressure to decrease to dangerous levels. Consider changing your tires to a set that can better handle wet, snowy or icy conditions. Always remember to check the weather forecast before you drive. If a severe storm is on the way, either stay at home or tell a family member where you’re going and how long you’ll be there. Even with the best precautions accidents still occur. We shine during the claim process. Give us a call 410-835-2000. Thanks for reading.
