Here at Skyline Mitsubishi, our team wants to help Thornton, CO drivers prepare for winter driving. Ice and snow can increase your chances of an accident, but if you follow these tips, it will help you stay safe when you're facing harsh winter weather.

When the roads are covered with snow, don't leave home unless it's absolutely necessary. If you do have to leave, be sure to drive slowly, and it's also important to accelerate and decelerate slowly to avoid sliding. You can also increase your following distance from the vehicle ahead and try not to stop when you're going up a hill that's covered with ice.

For longer trips during the winter, stay connected by letting others know when you're prepared to arrive at your destination and make sure the exhaust pipe isn't clogged with snow or mud. If you only use the heater long enough to keep the cabin warm, it will help conserve on fuel.
