12.05.19 With the snow falling and holiday trips ahead… here are some long distance Winter driving tips

Tips for Long-Distance Winter Trips

• Be Prepared: Have your vehicle checked by a AAA Approved Auto Repair facility before hitting the road.

• Check the Weather: Check the weather along your route and when possible, delay your trip if bad weather is expected.

• Stay Connected: Before hitting the road, notify others and let them know your route, destination and estimated time of arrival.

• If you get stuck in the snow: Stay with your vehicle: Your vehicle provides temporary shelter and makes it easier for rescuers to locate you. Do not try to walk in a severe storm. It is easy to lose sight of your vehicle in blowing snow and become lost.

Don’t over exert yourself: When digging out your vehicle, listen to your body and stop if you become tired.

Be Visible: Tie a brightly colored cloth to the antenna of your vehicle or place a cloth at the top of a rolled up window to signal distress. At night, keep the dome light on if possible. It only uses a small amount of electricity and will make it easier for rescuers to find you.

Clear the Exhaust Pipe: Make sure the exhaust pipe is not clogged with snow, ice or mud. A blocked exhaust pipe can cause deadly carbon monoxide gas to leak into the passenger compartment of the vehicle while the engine is running.

Stay Warm: Use whatever is available to insulate your body from the cold. This could include floor mats, newspapers or paper maps. Pre-pack blankets and heavy clothing to use in case of an emergency.

Conserve Fuel: If possible, only run the engine and heater long enough to remove the chill. This will help to conserve fuel.
