Are Your Ready for Winter Weather Driving? Tips from the CHP - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets.
With wet weather trickling in, there’s no time like the present, to brush up on those winter driving tips…
In his Fresno Bee “On Duty” column, CHP Officer David Singer’s runs through some simple but important concepts:
Slow it Down!
Many collisions result from driving too fast. It’s a simple matter of physics: your vehicle can’t stop as fast or turn as accurately on wet or icy pavement, Officer Singer says.
According to Officer Singer, braking and stopping distances are directly related to friction — where the “rubber meets the road,” to be more precise. Liquids, like oil on the asphalt or water, can greatly reduce friction and thereby increase stopping distances.
Show Your Tires Some Love!
Your vehicle needs good tires to handle bad weather. Tread depth should be checked on a regular basis, as well as rotating your tires as recommended in your vehicle owner’s manual, says Officer Singer. - this blog was written by TicketKick.com, Your Go-To Resource for Beating Traffic Tickets
