Winter travel and driving tips.

Winter driving presents a number of challenges. Severe weather can be both frightening and dangerous. Treacherous conditions test your abilities as a driver. You should know these safety rules for dealing with winter road emergencies. Mosaic Insurance reminds you to be cautious while driving in bad weather, and if a mishap takes place, be sure to contact your Prescott auto insurance agent immediately to get the repair process started.  


Mosaic Insurance recommends the following winter driving tips:


  • Be sure to have your vehicle serviced. Make sure the fluids are full and the tire pressure is good. This heads off many avoidable situations.
  • Be sure to have enough gas. If the vehicle is stuck in snow, ice, or mud, you many need to keep the vehicle running for heat.
  • Have some extra supplies. Having blankets, gloves, hats, food, water and any needed medication in your vehicle is a good idea on longer trips.
  • Check the weather. If planning day trips or long distance travel, be sure to check weather reports. Also, letting a friend or neighbor know where you'll be heading is a smart idea.


Other helpful vehicle tips:


  • Avoid driving while you’re tired. Getting enough rest before before heading out reduces many risks.
  • Never run a vehicle in the garage for long periods. The build up of gasses from the tailpipe cause be lethal to those in the garage and can harm those inside your home as well!
  • Do not use cruise control. Using cruise control reduces the response time of braking and over-braking can cause you to spin out in slick instances.
  • Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle. 


Following these tips will help you to arrive where you are going safe even if something unfortunate happens while out. Remember, slow down, take it easy, and keep alert. Many others on the road may not be comfortable driving in severe weather as well. Give everyone extra room to avoid collisions. If involved in a wreck call your auto insurance company to file a claim. To review your current auto policy or for a free quote, contact Mosaic Insurance today by calling 928-458-7374.
