Winter driving can be hazardous and scary, especially if your area gets snow and ice. Thinking about safe winter driving ahead of time can help make your driving safer, and help deal with an emergency if one arises.
RK Collision Repair Center recommends the three “Ps” of safe-driving this winter: PREPARE in advance, PROTECT yourself, and PREVENT crashes on the road.
Taking even a few minutes in advance to prepare for your winter driving or trip could make the difference in how safely you arrive at your destination!
This is something you should do every day—wear your seatbelt! When used correctly, wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of fatal injury to front seat passengers by 45%, and reduces the risk of moderate-to-critical injury by 50%. It is important to always use child safety seats properly as well. Never place a rear-facing infant seat in front of an air bag. Remember also, that children who are age 12 or under are much safer when riding in the back seat.
