Tips for Driving in a Snowstorm
 
Maybe the most difficult and dangerous kind of storm to drive in is a blizzard. Not only is it hard to see ahead, but the roads making it tough to maneuver in. Here are some tips for driving in a snowstorm.
 
It should go without saying that you should never drive in a blizzard unless you absolutely have to. You’re taking on a big risk by driving in one, so always wait out the storm whenever possible.
 
If you do have to drive in one, make sure you keep a large distance between vehicles, as your reaction time will be much slower. Also, steer smoothly or brake gently as it is best to avoid any sudden movement.
 
Make sure you always look ahead. If a driver in front slips ahead or stops abruptly, you will need time to help avoid an accident.
 
Finally, it is also a good idea to pack a kit in case you get stuck in the storm. The kit should have a hat and gloves, a shovel, scraper, a bag of sand, first aid kit, and extra blankets.
