Car trouble is never convenient, but it is even more dangerous when the weather is cold and the conditions are snowy. Taking a few steps to prevent accidents can save you a lot of hassle on the road, and it might even save your life.

As temperatures drop and winter weather worsens, driving conditions make travel more dangerous. The multiple locations for Attorney Big Al encourage the public to inspect their vehicles and take some basic precautions to ensure their safety on the roads in colder weather.
First, get your car serviced by a professional. Before the worst happens, ensure tires are rotated, oil is changed, and the tightness and condition of drive belts, clamps, and hoses are inspected. These routine checks can save your life by preventing mechanical failures on the road.
Additionally, installing new tires when the tread runs down will reduce the chance of skidding and spinning out. If you live in a snowy place, you may even want to invest in a good set of winter tires. Because snowy and icy roads are some of the most dangerous situations you’ll face in the winter, good tires are an excellent investment when it comes to staying on the road.
Drivers should keep the gas tank as full as possible to reduce the chance of frozen fuel lines, especially on very cold nights. Adding some fuel De-Icer to a vehicle’s gas tank once a month is another way to reduce the chance of a car that will not start in the morning.
Finally, have the car’s battery tested. Colder weather makes batteries more likely to drain out, so have a check performed by a professional during routine maintenance.
