What You Need To Know About Blizzard Driving

 

Before Heading Out

When you start the car, crank up the defrosters and aim them towards your windshield to help clear the windows more efficiently.
 

During Your Drive

If your car has an anti-lock braking system (ABS), remember to press your foot firmly on the brake and keep it there until you come to a complete stop. A vibration or quick pulsing sound is normal, so don't remove your foot or pump the brake pedal.
 

After You Arrive

Don't forget to turn off your windshield wipers to prevent movement and ice-related damage when you start your car again. You could even lift your wiper blades up so they don't freeze to the windshield.
 

Get the Coverage you Need

Even with all the right precautions in place, accidents still happen...that's why it's a good idea have comprehensive car insurance to protect you and your car.
