Traveling in extreme winter weather can be very dangerous because cold, snow and ice are very demanding on cars, drivers and passengers. Actions by other vehicles will alert you to problems more quickly,and give you that split-second of extra time to react safely.
My goal is to bring interesting, informative and thought-provoking articles and news about driving as it relates to traffic and driving on America’s roadways. For 100 years, the National Safety Council has been the leading safety advocate preventing unintentional injuries and death. Join the National Safety Council today and gain access to exclusive content including training tools, webinars, awards and more.

Connect with local National Safety Council chapters and training centers to get hands-on experience in safety.

If you live in one of these regions you can stay a bit safer by following some of these winter driving tips.Check into tires more suited for the winter weather.
If you stall or get stuck, tie a colored banner (make sure you have one in your winter survival kit) to your antenna or hang it out a window.


Winter is also a good time to have your battery and alternator tested and your radiator anti-freeze checked. Make sure you have a snow brush and ice scraper and always dress for winter weather just in case you have a problem along the road.
