The crazy winter is here to stay for just a little longer. With that being
said, you can expect slick roads, heavy snowfall, and less clear visibly.
While it may be safer to stay off the road when it is snowing, it may
not be realistic to avoid driving completely.
At Jordan Law, we understand people
need to travel to and from work, to schools to pick up their children,
and to grocery stores to make dinner. That is why we want you to practice
safe driving habits in any kind of weather.
To help keep you and your family safe, consider the four safety tips our
Denver car accident lawyers have listed below:
1. Ensure Your Windshield is Working Properly Before Getting on the Road
Before getting on the road, check to make sure your windshield defogger
is operating correctly. Then, allow your windshield to defog before moving.
This process can take a few minutes if your car is not warm, but be patient.
2. Know When to Use Tire Chains
Generally, roads that require tire chains will have signs stating that
the use of tire chains is mandatory. However, it is important to know
when tire chains are appropriate. If you travel on roads covered in snow
on a regular basis, it is important that you see a trusted mechanic to
install chains as soon as possible. This will improve the traction of
3. Accelerate and Decelerate Slowly
Never press on the control pedals aggressively. When roads are wet, icy,
and slippery, accelerating or decelerating quickly can cause your car
to slip. When you step on your control pedals slowly, you allow your tires
to maintain traction.
4. Never Take Turns Too Fast
When roads are wet, turning too quickly can cause you to lose control of
your vehicle. Be extra cautious and make turns slowly.
