Winter Driving Tips

  • Have your vehicle serviced regularly. Making sure your vehicle is in good running condition is the first step towards being safe on winter roads. Schedule a visit prior to winter.
  • Check for recalls on your vehicle. You can contact the NHTSA to learn if there are recalls on your car and to see how you can go about having the vehicle fixed at no cost to you.
  • Plug your vehicle in during cold weather. Keeping your battery fully charged will add life to the battery and ensure it will start in cold weather.
  • Keep your vehicle stocked with supplies such as batteries, flashlights, blankets, water, ice scrapers and extra food.
  • Plan your trips accordingly. When going on a trip to Dover, NJ, make sure your vehicle is fully stocked and you know the route.
  • Check all important parts of the vehicle before taking a trip to Parsippany. Make a checklist and make sure you’ve inspected things like battery, windshield wipers, windshield washer fluid, tire pressure and tread, oil level, cooling system and headlights.
  • Drive slowly and be alert. Drive the speed limit or lower on bad roads and pay attention to other drivers.
  • Don’t try to stop quickly on icy roads.
