Winter driving can be perilous at times, and it makes good sense to take steps aimed at improving your safety and peace of mind. The team here at Volvo Cars Normal is pleased to offer the following guidance on enjoying safer traveling regardless of the weather.

Before leaving home, be certain that your vehicle’s tires are properly pressurized and that the wiper blades are in good condition. It’s also wise to keep an emergency kit in your trunk with extra winter clothing, flares, snow removal tools and other items that you might need in the event of unexpected trouble on the road.

If you find yourself skidding on a wet or icy roadway, remove your foot from the accelerator but don’t immediately engage the brakes. Instead, steer carefully toward the side of the road and activate your emergency flashers as soon as you come to a complete stop.
