North Carolina roads can be treacherous places to drive when the snow starts to fall. If you need to drive during winter weather, keep these tips in mind.
• Stay alert and focused.
• Increase following distance; reduce speed and leave plenty of room between your car and the car in front of you.
• Avoid sudden moves; sudden moves are more likely to cause an accident than avoid one.
• Stock plenty of windshield washer fluid; precipitation can obscure visibility.
We hope that you will avoid driving in unsafe conditions if possible this winter. If you do have to drive, exercise extreme caution.
