Drive Slow and Cautious around Corners

Drive Slow and Cautious around Corners


Driving in the winter can present a challenge when you drive. As it snows more and more, you will notice that the snow piles get taller as well. This can impact your visibility as you turn corners or if you are at an intersection. If you just accelerate it, you run the chance of an accident occurring because you may hit someone. Instead, make sure that you slowly inch out of the intersection, so you can make yourself visible to other drivers. This will also help you to see better around the corner as well.

Drive with Care

You will also want to drive slowly around any snowplows that are on the road. As they push snow, some can blow up and impair your visibility. Sometimes it might look like whiteout or blizzard conditions. Give the snowplow plenty of space so you do not hit them or cause an accident. You will also want to remember to drive with your lights on. Not only does this illuminate the road for you, but it helps others to see you. If you are taking a corner, the reflection will help to notify others that you are there, and that gives them time to slow down.

When the weather is poor, you will want to make sure the windshield wipers are operating. This will help remove any road grime or precipitation that you might get on the windshield. You will also want to remember to check the washer fluid in the reservoir. Doing so will help your visibility. If the windshield starts to smear, having the wiper fluid will help clear the windshield efficiently as you drive. You can also have a container in your vehicle, incase you run out when you are not around a gas station. Before taking any long road trips, always make sure the reservoir is full.
