Staying Safe in Winter Driving

Despite their beauty, Michigan winters can make driving dangerous. Here are some safety tips to remember while traveling in wintry weather conditions:

  • Keep a safe distance between yourself and the vehicle in front of you.
  • Keep a snow brush/ice scraper in your vehicle to keep windows and headlights clear.
  • Don't use cruise control on slippery roads.
  • Turn on your headlights—even in the daytime.
  • Keep an extra blanket/coat in the car just in case you become stranded.
  • When possible, avoid going out in severe winter weather.
