Check Your Headlights, Man

Bozeman motorists are notorious for not fully preparing their cars in the morning for the commute during the winter. How many times have you seen the “one side of the windshield brush off” driving down the street?Driving Safety

Severe weather can be both frightening and dangerous for automobile travel. Motorists should know the safety rules for dealing with winter road emergencies.

AAA recommends the following winter driving tips:

* Avoid driving while you’re fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks.

* Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.

* Make certain your tires are properly inflated.

* Never mix radial tires with other tire types.

* Keep your gas tank at least half full to avoid gas line freeze-up.

* If possible, avoid using your parking brake in cold, rainy and snowy weather.

* Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand).

* Always look and steer where you want to go.

* Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle.

Tips for long-distance winter trips:

* Watch weather reports prior to a long-distance drive or before driving in isolated areas. Delay trips when especially bad weather is expected. If you must leave, let others know your route, destination and estimated time of arrival.

* Always make sure your vehicle is in peak operating condition by having it inspected by a AAA Approved Auto Repair facility.

* Keep at least half a tank of gasoline in your vehicle at all times.
