Driving safer in cold weather

Taking precautions before you get in your vehicle is the first step in safer driving.  Extreme cold weather conditions are forecasted for the rest of the week and Randy Sahs from Sahs Auto Collision in Sturgeon Bay advises drivers to follow a checklist of winter safety tips.  He says drivers should check their tires before hitting the road.  



Sahs says tires should have adequate inflation and tread depth to handle slippery conditions.  He adds that your battery should have enough cold-cranking amps to start in sub-zero temperatures.  Making sure you have wiper blades that are in good condition is important as well. 



Sahs recommends that you should let your vehicle idle for at least five minutes before starting to drive and to keep your speeds less than 25 miles per hour for one mile to allow the transmission to warm slowly and lubricate as intended.
