NHTSA issues annual winter safe driving tips for family travelers

With the onset of winter, the National Hightway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is sharing its winter safety tips for drivers:

  • Get your car serviced – Start the season off right with a visit to your mechanic for a tune-up and other routine maintenance. Have your entire vehicle checked thoroughly for leaks, badly worn hoses, or other needed parts, repairs and replacements.
  • Inspect your tires – Regardless of weather conditions, inspect your tires at least once a month and before long road trips. If you plan to use snow tires, have them installed before a snow storm hits. Remember that as the temperature outside drops, so does tire inflation pressure. Make sure each tire is filled to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended inflation pressure.
  • Know your car – Every vehicle handles differently; this is particularly true when driving on wet, icy or snowy roads. Take time now to learn how your vehicle handles under winter weather driving conditions.
  • Check your VIN – No matter the season use our VIN Look-up Tool at SaferCar.gov to make sure your vehicle is recall free.
