Two Winter Driving Tips Every Westlock Driver Should Know

Winter can be both frightening and dangerous for Westlock drivers. At Brown's Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, we believe that the best ways for motorists to stay safe when the outside temperature plummet is by having well-maintained vehicles and good winter driving skills. Following are two tips that all local motorists should know.

Prepare For The Worst

In the unfortunate event that you and your passengers get stuck on the roadside, you definitely want to be prepared. The best way to do this is by stowing away extra cold weather gear, water, food and other essentials. No matter how long you have to wait for help to arrive, these things will keep everyone comfortable and safe.

Take It Slow When Accelerating And Decelerating

​When the weather is extremely bad, you should only drive when you absolutely have to. Moreover, all of your driving should be done at a very careful and controlled speed. Going slow while accelerating and decelerating will help you maintain good traction and avoid skidding.
