Winter Driving Tips
MAINE STATE POLICE
With the winter driving season upon us, Troop A would like to pass along some winter driving tips to all residents.
Prior to the first snow fall check your vehicles tires, ensure proper inflation and adequate tread depth. Snow tires especially studded ones work best under snow and icy conditions. Check the windshield wipers to make sure they are in good working condition, keep the windshield washer fluid filled. Clean your headlights and taillights, remember it is just as important to be seen by other motorists as it is for you to be able to see. Clean all snow of off your vehicle prior to starting your trip, snow on the vehicle may limit your ability to see and could pose a hazard to other motorists should it fly from your vehicle and strike someone else’s.
Put together an emergency kit containing the following items.
Ice scraper, towel, first aid kit, none perishable snacks, drinking water, blanket, gloves & hat, flares or reflective cones, flashlight, sand or kitty litter, shovel and tire chains (if you have them).
Plan ahead, watch the weather forecast and if possible avoid driving in snow and ice! As you are preparing to leave take into account the prevailing weather/road conditions along with the forecast, leave on time preferably early as you will have to adjust your speed to the prevailing conditions. Leaving early will also lesson the urge to travel faster than the conditions warrant should you be facing a scheduled arrival time at your destination. Also keep in mind that the posted speed limit may not be the preferred or recommended speed during certain conditions such as ice, snow and fog. You may in fact have to travel slower than the speed limit to avoid losing control of your vehicle. If you are driving a four wheel or all-wheel drive vehicle do not be lulled into a false sense of security, while these vehicles tend to have great inclement weather capabilities they do have limits and once you lose control you will crash, also no matter what you drive, the faster you go the longer it takes to stop.
Once you have started your trip and you encounter snow and ice you must anticipate that stopping distances will increase, so while normally you may adhere to a 3 or 5 second following distance to other vehicles, now you must increase that to around 8 to 12 seconds. A greater gap between your vehicle and the one in front will allow you to adequately respond to an emergency that may develop, allowing ample time for your to either stop your vehicle or steer around an obstacle. Avoid making sudden changes in speed and direction, make small and smooth adjustments, should your vehicle start to fish tail, let of the throttle and counter steer into the direction the rear of your car is swinging. When steering around an obstacle refrain from fixing your focal point on the obstacle, rather you need to focus your eyes to where you want your vehicle to travel, naturally your hands will follow your eyes and you will steer the vehicle in the desired direction. And lastly, wear your seatbelt. No, a seat belt will not save your life in every instance, but it will keep you from being ejected, it will keep you in the driver seat so that you can possible regain control of your vehicle and it will keep you in the passenger compartment which is designed to provide the maximum level of safety.
The Troopers of Troop A hope that you have a safe and enjoyable winter driving season!
