Driving In Winter Weather

The snow, ice and freezing rain can make driving treacherous. If you have to drive in winter weather, please:

  1. BE PREPARED. The American Automobile Association recommends that you have your car inspected. Make sure your tires are correctly inflated and that you have all-weather or snow tires on your car. Drive with at least a half tank of gas. Clear off ice and snow from your windows, making sure your visibility isn’t impaired. 
  2. Once you’re on the road, REDUCE YOUR SPEED. Allow more stopping distance between you and the car in front of you. 

SHOULD YOU GET INTO AN ACCIDENT:

  • Stop your vehicle
  • Exchange information with the other driver.
  • Contact the police
  • Seek Medical attention.
  • Take photos and get names and contact information from witnesses.

You can visit http://www.vinsko.com/Personal-Injury/ for a printable card you can keep in your glove compartment to refer to if you’re involved in a car accident. The link is on the right-side of our personal injury page and you can click on it and then print it. 

While we encourage you to drive safely, and hope you’re never involved in a collision, please call us if you need any assistance following a car accident.

And remember, in winter weather:

If in doubt, don’t go out!
