It’s no secret that safety should be on your mind every time you start up your car. Winter driving is a whole different animal, though, and the snow and ice that come with the coldest winter in the last quarter century here in Virginia can make for some risky situations on the road.
Winter plays host to many more accidents than the warmer months, which makes sense considering how slick the roads can get when the snow starts to fall. The experts at our Virginia Honda dealership know how risky winter driving can be, though, and they have some tips to help you reduce your risk.
Allowing plenty of space to brake is always important, and doubly so in the winter. When the driver in front of you suddenly hits their brakes – or worse, gets into an accident – you and your car need plenty of time to come to a safe stop.
Icy roads can lead to sliding if you’re driving too aggressively, so you’ll want to leave yourself a lot more space than usual. You’ll also want to factor in reduced visibility, if the snow is still coming down.
Another problem that many drivers encounter is becoming over confident behind the wheel. Even with advanced features like Honda’s Anti-Lock Braking system and Vehicle Stability Assist, it’s important to know the limits of your vehicle and to drive cautiously. While these features are advanced and certainly make a difference, a vehicle is still only as good as its driver.
Take the time to learn whether your vehicle is front-, rear-, or all-wheel drive, and how this can impact over- or understeering. It’s important to know how your car is likely to respond and how to correct this, especially on slick roads.
In addition to keeping your wits about you on the road, it’s important to make sure your car is ready for winter driving. Checking key components like your brake fluid and antifreeze can help your car run better in the cold, while checking your tires can ensure adequate traction.
If it’s time to winterize your vehicle or if you’re not sure whether or not your car is ready to brave the cold, check in with the experts at our Virginia Honda service center. They’ll get you squared away so that you can feel confident behind the wheel.
For more information on winter driving and ways you can be prepared, be sure to call Pohanka Honda of Fredericksburg directly at (540) 735-9100 or to visit us online today!
