Ice, Snow Make Driving Hazardous | Wichita Auto Care

If your tires aren’t up for the rigors of icy roads, it’s time to talk with the Wichita tire pros at Tracy’s Automotive. 

It looks as if winter is here. Meteorologists were predicting a “widespread killing freeze” this week accompanied by light snow, sleet and freezing rain. Forecasters also warned drivers to be careful because roads will be slippery.

Folks who are new to Wichita and its sometimes harsh winter weather may not know how to cope with hazardous driving conditions. And, even for natives, it can be easy to forget how treacherous an icy road can be when you’ve spent several spring and summer months driving on clear roads. It’s good to be reminded of safety measures for driving in hazardous winter conditions. offers these tips:

  • Stay in control when it’s slicky. And never slam on your brakes.
  • Clean frost, ice and snow off your car so you have good visibility.
  • Keep a safe distance between you and other drivers.
  • In freezing rain, stay home if possible. If not, be especially careful. Stick to main roads.

It’s also wise to make sure your car is in top condition for winter weather and dangerous roads: Make sure your battery and brakes work. And consider getting winter tires if you have to travel a lot. If you decide not to get winter tires, make sure the tires you are using are in good shape with plenty of tread and make sure they’re properly inflated.

If your car needs some work, or if you’re not sure whether it’s ready for winter, or if you need tires, it’s time to find a trusted Wichita auto care pro like the auto care technicians at Tracy’s Automotive.
