With nearly 60 inches of snow per year, Denver drivers may be used to driving in the wet, icy conditions. However, sometimes there are factors that are out of a driver’s control that can make this type of driving the most hazardous. Much of it starts before even taking off. Before driving in winter conditions, make sure all snow and ice is cleared from your vehicle and you can see out of every window and mirror. Also pay attention to clearing off your headlights and brake lights, so other drivers know your actions. You should also have plenty of windshield wiper fluid and a safety kit in your trunk that includes supplies that will help you in the event you become stranded. If you do not have snow tires on your vehicle, consider snow chains if you have two-wheel drive. When it comes to ice, it does not matter if you have a four-wheel drive SUV or a small car, no one can stop on ice. Be sure to drive slow, leave plenty of distance between you and the car in front of you and avoid slamming on your brakes. If you know you are on ice and have enough room, coast to slow down as opposed to braking.
