Much of Central Wisconsin experienced snow yesterday and drivers may have found it difficult to navigate on the slick roads. Reviewing winter driving guidelines and making sure your Wisconsin car insurance policy is protecting you will help you stay safe this winter.
Winter driving in Wisconsin can be difficult. Snow and ice create undesirable driving conditions, and yesterday’s weather reminded us that winter in Wisconsin is unpredictable. However, you can bring more security into your life by following these winter driving tips:
Allow yourself extra time when driving. Leave earlier for work and be patient on roadways. If possible, do not drive if roads are bad and wait for snowplows to clear the roads.
Do not pass snowplows. Although they may make your commute longer, the road ahead of the plow is probably in worse condition than the road behind the plow. Snowplow drivers also have very limited visibility, making it difficult for them to see you if you attempt to pass them.
Clean off your entire windshield, all mirrors, headlights, and tail lights. You should also make sure you can see to the sides and behind your vehicle.
Check your Wisconsin car insurance policy. Is your policy providing enough coverage for you? Do you know what to do in case you get in an accident? Our agents at Community Insurance are available to go over all of your questions and concerns.
