Cold weather approaching, be mindful of the changing conditons.

The winter months can be a real struggle for drivers, but there are some simple ways to help your car stay safe and make sure you don't get stuck on the side of the road. Driving in the cold is hard enough, but it's even more dangerous when you're not prepared. Here are some tips to help you drive safer in cold conditions:

1. Lower visibility at night

The first thing to check is your visibility. Check all lights on the car, especially at night. Make sure that all lights are working properly and aren't foggy or dimmed. When it's dark out, you'll have less visibility than usual. Make sure your car has good headlights and taillights that work well in all conditions. You should also make sure that your windshield wipers are sharp and free of damage or rust so that they can get rid of rain and snow on the windshield easily.

2. Check the weather forecast

Checking the weather forecast can help you prepare for what kind of road conditions you might encounter on your drive. You can also find out if there are any specific precautions that need to be taken when driving in certain areas or at certain times of day.

For example, if there's an ice storm coming, then you might want to leave earlier than usual so that you have time to get home before it starts raining heavily or snows heavily.

3. Check your tires

First, make sure you have tires that are in good condition. The colder weather causes the air in your tires to contract, which can cause them to lose pressure over time. You should check them every month or so during the winter season to make sure they're not too low and causing damage to your car's body. Check your tires before leaving for work every morning; this will ensure that they have enough air pressure as well as being properly inflated for safe driving conditions during rush hour traffic jams caused by snow drifts or fallen trees blocking traffic lanes

4. Keep a good distance

Make sure you have plenty of room between yourself and other cars when traveling on icy roads. If another driver hits a patch of ice, they may lose control of their vehicle and hit yours — so keep some distance between yourself and other vehicles when driving around in colder conditions!

Finally, don't forget about yourself! Make sure you wear appropriate clothing if you plan on going out in freezing temperatures—and don't forget an extra layer for later!
