Driving safety tips for inclement weather

Driving can be scary, even for the most experienced of drivers. When you are faced with driving during inclement weather, you should be as prepared as possible. If at all possible, you should avoid driving during inclement weather. For some, this cannot be totally avoidable and that is understandable. Here are some safety tips for driving during inclement weather in Houston.

Prior to driving during inclement weather, you should run through an inspection check of your vehicle. Make sure all of your lights work properly, including headlights, brake lights, taillights and turn signals. Be sure your tires have the correct amount of air pressure in them. Check your spare tire too. Put jumper cables in your vehicle.

When driving, you need to keep both hands firmly on the wheel so you do not lose control of the vehicle. If driving during a winter storm, you need to be on the lookout for black ice. This is very hard to see from afar so try to spot it as soon as possible.

Drop the speed of your vehicle by at least five miles per hour under the posted speed limit when driving during inclement weather. This will give your vehicle more time to come to a safe stop.

Have a go-bag in your car at all times. This bag should have a change of clothes, extra socks, another pair of shoes, hand warmers, a bottle of water and some snacks. You should also keep a blanket with you in the vehicle.

Being involved in a car accident is overwhelming. Add in the fact that it occurred during inclement weather and your stress levels will certainly be high. You don't want to get stuck after an accident in bad weather. Be prepared for all weather conditions prior to hitting the road so you know how to respond.
