Winter weather driving tips from Christian Brothers Automotive
If you have to be out on the roads we have some helpful driving tips for you to follow.
Christian Brothers Automotive owner Josh Page says the best vehicles for driving in the snow are four wheel drives and if you're in a smaller car that's low to the ground, you run the risk of damaging your car.
He says it's important to drive slow, don't follow too close to the car in front of you, and always be aware of your surroundings.
The most important tip, according to Page: "Don't be in a hurry. Don't be in a hurry to get to your destination and be a defensive driver at all times."
He says his shop has seen a lot of cars damaged from getting stuck in deep snow drifts and then being towed out incorrectly.
If you can't see the entrance or exit to your destination, it's best to avoid going there or you could damage your suspension.
Even if you have a 4x4, it's still possible to get stuck.
