3 Easy Tips for Driving in the Snow | Uftring Auto Group Blog

Believe it or not, winter is back in Central Illinois. Gone are the days on the lake, the early rounds of golf and the pool days with the girls. Don't worry, we'll make our way around the Sun again, and we will be wishing it was cooler before we know it! In the meantime, here are some tips for driving in the winter.

1. Take Time to Defrost Your Windshield

Before you even hop on the road, you'll want your vehicle to be warmed up and thawed out. Starting your car about ten minutes before you usually leave will allow time for clear windows and a warm cabin! Plus, it's highly unsafe to scrape a small area on your windshield so you can see "enough" of the road. Don't want to stand in the cold longer than you have to? Purchase an automatic start! Our parts departments at any of our locations will be happy to install one for you. That way, you don't even have to step outside!

2. Drive Slow - Drive Safe

You should always follow the speed limit, but especially so in the winter! With the temperatures being as low as they are, you never know when there might be a patch of ice on the road. And, just because you see it, doesn't mean the person in front of you does. With that said, it pays to drive slow, keep distance between other drivers, and remain attentive at all times. 

3. Make Sure Your Tires Are Up to Date

What's one of the most important winter driving factors? Having a good grip on the road! Good grip comes from good tires. And good tires come from routine service. So, before we get too deep into the winter, visit your local Uftring service department and get those tires checked! You'll be glad you did. 

Of course, there are many other steps you can take to handle the roads in the winter, but these three are the most basic and the most important! Stay safe out there these next few months! If you have any questions, give your closest Uftring dealer a call, or visit uftringautogroup.com for more information.
