We all know how challenging winter driving can be with slippery conditions, snow, ice and other winter related elements. Being aware of your surroundings when driving this winter and knowing what precautions to take will certainly help minimize any winter vehicle accidents. The folks here at Auto Clinic of Franklin are committed to providing superior services to all our valued clients and that includes these helpful winter driving tips.

At Auto Clinic of Franklin we are truly all about our clients. We give focus to the safety and well-being of all our clients and have put together these useful tips to use during your winter driving. We want to ensure you acquaint yourself with what to do should you encounter icy, dangerous driving conditions.

When driving should you notice a vehicle in front of you that is swerving make certain you immediately slow down and keep as far a distance as possible between you and the swerving car ahead. If need be, select an alternate route to travel if it appears the conditions up ahead are extremely dangerous as noted by the vehicle in front of you.

Whenever driving on a highway when visibility issues are present, make it a point to leave at least twice as much distance between you and the vehicle traveling ahead of you. Never exceed posted speed limits when dangerous weather conditions are present regardless of how much of a rush you may be in. When driving visibility is impaired your overall safety becomes somewhat impaired as well, which is why we cannot emphasize enough the importance of staying alert and focused when driving.
