So that your car does not slip in winter, pay attention to these tips

Sometimes winter hides unpleasant surprises for motorists, and one of these surprises is the slips that cars can face when it rains or snows in winter, and the slip may be so dangerous that it may cause a major accident. Caution and caution are always required when driving a car, but this is doubly so when it comes to winter. Precipitation and snow can cause skidding, especially if the car is traveling on a low road. There are many tips on avoiding making mistakes that lead to making very dangerous slips.

Rainy weather and winter

Frequent scenes in winter we see almost every day, most notably the sliding of cars on the pavement in rainy weather, especially roads with dirt covers that turn with water into an oily substance that does not hold on to the wheels of the car and is not controlled by the brakes, especially at medium and high speeds. Sliding your vehicle causes a lot of accidents and problems. Also, from the usual scenes with a very low temperature, an ice crust forms on the car glass and on the wheels, which prevents natural friction with the road floor, and this increases landslides, causing various traffic accidents, resulting in material and human losses.

Important tips for driving in winter to avoid slipping

Technicians and specialists provide important tips and guidelines for drivers to avoid slipping their cars during the winter, the most important of which are:

  1. Reducing speed while walking in winter, this guarantees you safety on the roads, prevents any surprises that may appear to you.

  2. Keep a sufficient safety distance between you and other cars, this ensures good control of the vehicle, especially if you are surprised by any emergency, step on the brakes and skid occurs, the safety distance is sufficient to control the car again.

  3. Gradually reduce the speed, by gently stepping on the brake pedal, especially on turns, slopes and inclined floors.

  4. If it happens and you lose control of the car, focus your eyes on the road, and don't look at any barrier because then you will inevitably hit it.

  5. Brakes permanently lose their quality every certain period of time, replace the damaged ones and do not delay with this.

  6. Stick to traffic rules and priorities and take good care not to violate them.

  7. Stay away from walking on water bodies, in areas of freezing and snowdrifts.

  8. Beware of walking over floors wet with oil of various kinds.

  9. The tires of the car lose their integrity and integrity before winter, especially the depth of the seams in them to ensure that sufficient friction with the floor is obtained.

  10. Check the cleanliness of the windshield of the car, and whether the front wipers of the vehicle are working properly. Wait at least 15 minutes after the winter rain, so that the streets are properly washed from dust, oil substances and oils.

  11. Avoid using brakes as much as possible and replace them with reverse gears.

  12. Walk along the roads to avoid collisions with other boats, and stay away from areas where children are present.

  13. Stop safely at the right time, a good driver appreciates things and makes the right decisions at the right times. Make sure to turn on the lights while driving in the daytime, to get the best possible visibility, especially if the sun's rays do not reach the ground, because of the clouds accumulated on top of each other.

  14. Avoid some behaviors that may distract the driver's concentration from using the phone, reading, etc.

  15. Check the brakes of your car and make sure that they are in good working order.

  16. The battery during the cold months needs a lot of care due to the versatility related to it such as heating, cooling, wipers or lights. It is therefore important that you check that your car battery is constantly checked and that it is free of defects. Temperatures also affect the chemical process inside the battery, which produces and stores electricity, and slows down very effectively in winter.

  17. Pay attention if your car battery is more than five years old, then it should be replaced because it has become old and can stop working while walking in cold weather.
