How To Drive In The Snow: Life-Saving Tips

Concrete Safe Ice Melt

The harsh winter conditions can make driving difficult if you haven’t dealt with them for a while. Winter driving can be less stressful with proper preparation and common sense like- keeping a defroster in the car. Let’s discuss all options in detail:

Here are some helpful tips for getting around during the cold season:

Keep a defroster in the car.

Safe Paw is a 100% chloride-free and salt-free ice melter with endothermic properties. It utilizes the solar effect to melt the ice and keeps it this way for at least 72 hours. It comprises natural volcanic rock and seven other minerals that are 100% environment-friendly. Therefore, it is a concrete-safe ice melt. It does not contain any plastic or chemicals, making it safe for pets. It is not messy, does not stick to the shoes, does not block sewers or gutters, and seamlessly mixes with soil.

Another way to keep your vehicle running smoothly is to make sure that the fuel tank is full before driving in cold weather. If it’s not, fill it up before starting on your journey. Make sure you know how much gas is needed for the trip, and add more if necessary. Also, remember to check the engine oil level; a low oil level can cause damage to your car’s engine if driven in extreme temperatures.

Gently press the foot pedal.

When you’re driving in the snow, it’s important to not press the gas pedal too hard because this can cause fishtailing or spinning out of control. When you’re braking, don’t slam on the brakes—instead, gradually apply pressure and then let off so that your vehicle doesn’t skid into something else. 

Stock up on emergency supplies.

Perhaps the most important thing you can do to ensure that winter driving is safe and enjoyable is to prepare for a winter storm and carry the necessary supplies in your car. Some of the most important things to have on hand include:

Before the winter season begins, make sure your car is in good shape.

Check the tire pressure. The weight of the snow and ice can cause tires to lose air pressure, which will make it harder to stop your car.

Check the battery. If you see that your lights are dim or dimmer than usual, there could be something wrong with your car’s battery and you’ll need to have a mechanic check it out.

Check the wipers and lights. Make sure they’re working properly so you can see when driving in bad weather conditions like snowstorms or foggy days where it might be difficult to spot other vehicles on the road ahead of you even though they’re right in front of your face!
