STAYING SAFE WHILE DRIVING IN THE WINTER

February 8th, 2021 by

With winter in full swing in Carrollton, now is a perfect time to think through some ways to stay safe while you’re driving on the roads around the area. We at Mike Bell Chevrolet want you to be able to arrive safely at your destination, time after time. If you stick to these easy winter driving tips, navigating slick roads will be a breeze.

One important thing that you should do is add some extra weight to the rear of your vehicle. Usually, a 50-pound bag of sand in your trunk or cargo area will do the trick. This extra weight will help prevent fishtailing when you’re driving on slick roads. Plus, if you get stuck, you can use the sand to give yourself some extra traction.

Another good tip is to pack an emergency kit and keep it in your car during the winter. This kit should include items like a first-aid kit, an emergency blanket, and road flares.
