AAA Recommends the following winter driving tips:
- Avoid driving while fatigued. Getting the proper amount of rest before taking on winter weather tasks reduces driving risks.
- Never warm up a vehicle in an enclosed area, such as a garage.
- Make certain your tires are properly inflated.
- Never mix radial tires with other tire types.(In radial tires, the cord plies are arranged at 90 degrees to the direction of travel, or radially (from the center of the tire)).
- Keep your gas tank at least half full.
- If possible, avoid using your parking brake in the cold, as well as rainy and snowy weather.
- Do not use cruise control when driving on any slippery surface (wet, ice, sand, etc.).
- Always look and steer where you want to go.
- Use your seat belt every time you get into your vehicle.
