Driving In the Snow

On Behalf of | Mar 17, 2017 | Car Accidents |

Although winter is almost over in most of Pennsylvania, there are certainly snow dates ahead. If you will be driving in snowy conditions here are some things to consider.

Make sure you leave enough room between you and the car in front of you. On slippery roads you will need more time to stop if a sudden emergency arises.

When you are accelerating make sure you do it slowly and smoothly. An icy road and quick acceleration can cause any vehicle to get out of control.

If you are caught in white-out conditions with blinding snow don’t immediately pull over. Your vehicle will be harder for other cars to see if you are pulled over to the side of the road. What you should do is continue slowly with your hazard lights on until you can find a place where you can pull over to a point of safety.

So remember when driving in the snow take it slow. You don’t want to be one of the people involved when something like the recent 50 plus car and truck pile-up on Route 80.
