Driving during the winter time can be a daunting experience that is frequently filled with unexpected challenges and complicated driving dynamics. Being prepared for the unexpected can make all the difference when driving during winter conditions.
Proper driving and use of preventive measures separates good drivers from the average. Tim's Truck Capital presents a few tips that will help you drive safely during winter time. Read more below:
Drive your truck slowly- Most truck accidents during winter occur because the driver was driving at a high speed (for winter). So don't hurry. Drive slowly.
Keep a safe distance from the car or truck in front- Keep plenty of space between your truck and the vehicle in front. About 1/4th mile is a good distance.
Do not use tail lights as a marker- At night or in low visibility conditions, some drivers use the tail light of the vehicle in front as a marker. Don't do this. If you are too focused on a particular vehicle and not the conditions around it, you’re putting yourself in harm’s way.
Be careful around the shoulder of the road- Do not park your truck on the shoulder of the road, especially if it's dark or if the visibility is low. Another driver may think you are on the road and end up slamming their vehicle into yours.
