Stay Safe This Season With These Winter Driving Tips

Living in beautiful California comes with a number of benefits! One great thing about the sunshine state is that residents rarely have to live with inclement weather! While this is more than nice, it can also be dangerous when strange bouts of weather decide to make an appearance. We may not be experienced winter drivers, so the potential for an accident can be high. The Randy Jones Insurance Services team would like to see you and your vehicle make it through the winter season safely! Here are a few winter driving tips that should help you do just that:

  • Take a look at your tire pressure. This can help increase traction in wet weather conditions. Having the proper amount of air in your tires can also help to extend the lifetime of your tires during the battle against potholes and uneven roads.
  • How is your windshield wiper fluid? Making sure that you have enough fluid, and that your wipers are in good condition can help with visibility during bad weather.
  • If you have 4-wheel drive, ensure that the system engages and disengages, as it should. We have very little need for our 4-wheel drive during day-to-day life, so it is beneficial to make sure the system works properly.
  • Equip your vehicle with an emergency kit that includes a flashlight, jumper cables, a blanket, and a bit of extra food and water. You will be so happy to have an emergency kit if you ever find yourself stuck.
