All Star Volvo Winter Driving Tips!

Slow and Steady Wins The Race – All Star Volvo

All Star Volvo cares about your safety on and off the road. As the colder months approach, we want to ensure our customers are aware of the winter precautions that should be taken while driving your vehicle on icy roads. Although Louisiana is not known for snow, roads have the potential of icing when wet, and driving in these conditions are especially dangerous. Stay on the look out for signs that read, “Road May Ice.”

When driving in the winter, the first thing you should do is slow down. This is the golden rule of winter driving. Try not to stop suddenly if you can avoid it. Stopping suddenly has the potential to skid your car even further than you would usually stop on a warmer day. Drivers frequently underestimate how long it takes to brake and how difficult it can be to steer on slippery roads. You should also avoid using cruise control when on icy roads and steer your vehicle exactly in the direction you wish to go.

If you encounter any uphills while driving, be sure to approach with caution. As you reach the crest of the hill, reduce your speed and proceed down the hill as slowly as possible. Do not stop going up the hill for any reason. There is nothing worse than trying to get up an icy road on a hill. Please always wear your seat belt no matter the weather, day, or road conditions. Safety First. All Star Volvo would be happy to answer any further questions about winter driving.
