Despite the beauty of winter, icy roads are a major concern for many drivers because they’re a major cause of accidents in the winter. We at Cox Auto Group want you to be prepared for winter driving and the possibility of sliding. We have some great tips to share with you to help make winter driving a little easier.

Drive for the weather. Don’t expect to be able to drive at the same speed as in the summer. If you feel yourself sliding on ice, avoid hitting the brakes because it will make you slide even more. Steer the vehicle in the same direction as the slide but without heavy braking. Stay calm and avoid over braking.

By driving cautiously, following these helpful tips and allow extra time, winter driving doesn’t have to be quite so dangerous and stressful. Above all, make sure your vehicle is in good running condition. Stop at our shop in Wilmington, and allow us to service your vehicle.
