Stay Safe on the Road During Storms

The cold temperatures and stormy weather that take over at the end of the year aren't only uncomfortable, they also cause more hazards on the road. High winds and storms can cause multiple issues if you need to drive somewhere. If you get caught in a storm, DFW Distributors has some tips to keep you safe and help you make it to your destination.

Rain Storm Safety

One of the most common types of storms during the fall and winter are rain storms. Heavy downpours can affect your ability to see as well as your vehicle's traction. It's a good idea to check the weather before you leave your home so you're not surprised by a storm while you're out. If you get caught in a storm, slow down your traveling speed as much as you need so you feel in control. Remember to leave more distance than usual between your vehicle and the one in front of you. This increased distance will give you enough time to stop if the vehicle in front of you makes a sudden stop. Performing regular inspections on your vehicle will help ensure your windshield wipers will do their job properly during a storm and that your brakes will keep you safe.

Driving Through a Snow Storm

Driving through a snowstorm can be just as dangerous as driving through a heavy downpour, if not more. Just like during a rainstorm, slow down your traveling speed and increase the distance between your car and the one in front of you. Be extra attentive and watch the road you're traveling on in order to avoid driving over slippery ice. The freezing temperatures can cause black ice which is hard to spot, so don't be afraid to be extra cautious. If you're expecting a snow storm or snow on the road you're planning to travel on, carry the necessary supplies in your car. Keep snow chains in your trunk along with an ice scraper, some sand and jumper cables.
