Driving during winter can be a challenge even for the most experienced drivers and especially in places where it snows. Thankfully in Brisbane, we do not have extreme weather conditions but still it is better to be careful while you are on the road. No matter where you are or you plan to be, here are top driving tips for dealing with adverse conditions this winter.

1. Be patient:

This is the first fundamental thing you must learn. It may be difficult for your car in the cold to start, so put the key in the contact position and when all the lights go out you put the key in

the start position simultaneously pressing the clutch. If this does not work at first try! Put the key back to its initial position, wait about 15 seconds and start the process again.

2. Clean both the exterior and interior of the windscreen frequently:

Modern recycled plastic panels often cause the windshield to fog. This reduces vision and increases danger, so we recommend using hot air to eliminate the problem. It is also necessary to clean or simply run a dry cloth or paper towel to the front and rear exterior lights and also clean the taillights and the reflective license plate. The driver who runs behind us will not see our car if they are covered by snow. If an ice sheet forms on the outside glass, never use hot water because you will burst the glass.

3. Tires:

The tires must be in perfect condition and have exactly the right amount of air. It is more than recommended, if you plan to go to some snowy area, carry the chains in the trunk and know how to put them.

4. Don’t drive when there is a lot of snow and ice.

Adverse weather conditions make traveling difficult, if not impossible, it is preferable to reach an agreement with your company to work from home. If it takes you half way to somewhere, it would be best to stop until the weather improves.

5. Extra winter equipment.

Carry sleeping bags (at least one for each occupant of the car), inflatable pillows, large boiling water, tea bags, coffee powder and packets of soup. It is also essential to carry candles in the trunk with safety chandeliers, lanterns without batteries, the phone charger, folding shovels and water boots, along with safety reflective garments.

6. Correct lighting.

In winter, the sun rises early and phenomena like fog are common, so the visibility decreases. To see and be seen, it is advisable to drive with dipped lights.

7. Windshield and rear window in perfect condition.

Drivers should check the condition of their windows and any breaks or cracks, repair or change the window to prevent frost breaking. It is important to know exactly the insurance policy of the car and the covers that it includes on this item.

8. Correct air conditioning of the passenger compartment.

It is an essential that the driver is comfortable at the wheel; the temperature must be the ideal to drive without feeling cold or excessive heat. It is necessary to remember it and put it into practice to achieve safe winter driving.

9. Reduce speed

The phenomena weather characteristic of winter; Ice, wind, snow and rain demand a lower speed driving to avoid sudden reactions at the wheel.

10. Choose long gears.

Whenever possible, and especially on ice or snow, you should drive with the car's gears as long as possible, even at the start of the ride.

A rigorous observation of these 10 winter driving tips guarantees the driver a quiet, safe and satisfactory winter season at the wheel. In addition to these simple winter driving tips, we also recommend a thorough review of the mechanical condition of the car. It is best to go to a trusted car service in Brisbane to get your car checked.
