How can you drive safely in poor winter weather conditions?

When winter hits in Hollidaysburg, there's no escaping it. Snow piles up, and it's hazardous to be out on the roads. People in Hollidaysburg aren't strangers to snow or ice, but that doesn't mean that you can afford to be too casual about the poor weather conditions. If you have to drive, you need to take steps to make sure you stay safe.

To be better prepared for winter driving, the first step is to make sure you pack your vehicle with safety kits. Bring bandages, food, water, warming blankets and other essentials, so that you can take care of yourself if you get stranded. Always check the weather before you go out to decide if you need to bring more items with you.

If you do check the weather and find it's unsafe, it's usually best to stay off the roads unless you have no other choice. If you do have to drive, follow familiar paths, so you know where you are and how to get from one place to another even if street signs are blocked or the roads are hard to see.

Also, take the time to prepare your vehicle for the weather. You need to check your ignition, brakes and wiring. Take the time to assess the battery's condition and to add antifreeze and temperature-appropriate windshield wiper fluid.

Once on the road, slow down and be cautious. Winter driving can be tedious, but don't rush. Take extra time to stop and be sure to put on traction control, so you have a better chance of avoiding a collision.
