Winter Driving Safety Tips
(Birmingham Police, Jan. 26, 2021)
Birmingham, MI – Here are some winter driving tips courtesy of the Birmingham Police…
Now is the time to get your vehicle serviced, check for recalls and inflate your tires. Be sure it’s in great shape as we enter another unpredictable winter season.
It’s great practice to keep your gas tank full in case you get stuck behind an accident or shut-down.
Plan your trip ahead of time; know your route and give yourself extra time to get to your destination safely.
Equip your vehicle with an ice scraper, jumper cables, flashlight, blanket, water, and snacks.
Don’t put your vehicle in drive until the windows are defrosted and your front and rear lights are free of ice and snow.
Always wear your seat belt, stay alert, and leave extra room in between you and the vehicle ahead of you.
Lastly, please respect our snow plows. Stay far behind them or use extra caution when passing.
