Now that we are getting into our cold, snowy season, it’s important to give yourself some extra time before you leave your house to clear the snow off your vehicle.
It’s important to brush and clear the snow off your entire vehicle, including your roof, windows, headlights, and hood.
Leaving snow or ice on top of your vehicle is extremely dangerous to other drivers on the road. Snow and ice flying from other vehicles can cause accidents and even damage other cars.
Snow piled on your vehicle can also cause a mini blizzard and near whiteout conditions to drivers traveling behind you on the road.
Leaving mounds of snow on the roof of your vehicle can be extremely hazardous to you while driving. It only takes one fast, hard stop or a quick acceleration of the gas to send all that snow sliding onto your windshield or rear window, blocking your view.
Please take the extra time to remove snow from your vehicle before you get behind the wheel. This will keep you and other drivers safe while traveling during the winter season.
