Winter Driving Tips

2015-12-07 ASFL Winter Driving Tips

At All Star Ford Lincoln, we take safety very seriously and that means we want you to be informed and prepared for any issues you may face as winter weather approaches. It may still be fall, but we are beginning to feel the effects of the coming season, so we compiled this list of a few Winter Driving Tips to help you conquer winter with confidence.

  • Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage
  • Make sure your tires are properly inflated
  • Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand)
  • Make sure your battery and charging system work properly
  • Remember that bridges and overpasses freeze up first
  • Any time your windshield wipers are on, your headlights should be on as well
  • Brake gently to avoid skidding or sliding
  • Stay alert, slow down, and stay in control

Our service team here at All Star Ford Lincoln also suggests getting your vehicle inspected in order to adequately prepare for driving in winter weather conditions.
