Driving Your Car in the Snow to Avoid Damage

Driving Your Car in the Snow to Avoid Damage

Driving in the snow can be hazardous.

Last weekend was a truly rough time for Wichita drivers. This is because the combination of slick roads and heavy snowfall resulted in challenging driving conditions, car crashes, and vehicles in ditches, kwch.com says. Moreover, not only was the weekend noted for crashes, but it also served as a reminder that it is “unsafe and illegal to drive with windows obstructed,” kansascity.com says. This means it’s important to clear your windshield and other vehicle windows of all snow, frost, and fog.

Trooper Jodi of the Kansas Highway Patrol explains, according to kansascity.com:On these frosty mornings, and during inclement weather, be sure to clear ALL windows before leaving the driveway. If your windows frost or fog up while driving, stop at a safe location to clear them. It is unsafe and illegal to drive with windows obstructed.” He adds that the state holds drivers liable for damaging other vehicles caused by ice, snow, and other debris that falls onto them. A driver can be fined for violating the law.

A clean, clear windshield is a big help in keeping safe on the road. But, so is keep other parts of your vehicle clear of snow and frost.

Statefarm.com recommends you clear snow and ice from around the car before clearing off your windshield and windows. Also, be sure your tailpipe is clear of snow then move to the windows. Then your next step should be clearing the headlights, side mirrors and turn signals. Finally, don’t forget to clean your windshield wipers and replace them if they are more than six months’ old.
