Driving In Winter Weather

| Aug 22, 2022 | Personal Injury

The snow, ice and freezing rain can make driving treacherous. If you have to drive in winter weather, please:

  • BE PREPARED. The American Automobile Association recommends that you have your car inspected. Make sure your tires are correctly inflated and that you have all-weather or snow tires on your car. Drive with at least a half tank of gas. Clear off ice and snow from your windows, making sure your visibility isn’t impaired.
  • Once you’re on the road, REDUCE YOUR SPEED. Allow more stopping distance between you and the car in front of you.


  • Stop your vehicle
  • Exchange information with the other driver.
  • Contact the police
  • Seek Medical attention.
  • Take photos and get names and contact information from witnesses.

You can visit for a printable card you can keep in your glove compartment to refer to if you’re involved in a car accident. The link is on the right-side of our personal injury page and you can click on it and then print it.

While we encourage you to drive safely, and hope you’re never involved in a collision, please call us if you need any assistance following a car accident.

And remember, in winter weather:

If in doubt, don’t go out!
