Winter Driving tips

by the White River Health System Foundation

The next few days will be cold and rainy, making roadways in our area slippery and hazardous. We wanted to share tips for driving safely in winter weather. 

– Clear ice or snow from your windshield, windows, and side mirrors before you hit the road.

– Wear your seatbelt and make sure your passengers are buckled up.

– Drive slowly and carefully. It is harder to control or stop a vehicle on ice or snow-covered roads.

– Increase your following distance so you can stop for the vehicles in front of you.

– Stay alert. Put down your phone, lower your radio volume, and minimize distractions in the vehicle so you can focus on driving.
