Preparing to See and to be Seen

winter-driving-safety

If you cannot see through your windows, you should not drive. If your lights and signals are to protect you, they must be visible.

Winter driving safety measures:

  • Brush the snow off your car.
  • Scrape the windshield, rear and side windows.
  • Clear your heater air intake (this is usually in front of the windshield).
  • Clean your headlights, tail lights and signal lights.
  • Be sure to clear your tissue boxes, sunglasses, papers, etc., away from defroster outlets.
  • Drive with your headlights on at all times. Even on a clear day, swirling snow makes it difficult to see and to be seen.
