Can you drive more safely to the rink? Winter Car Care Dos and Don’ts

Dec 10, 2012 by

Like many of you, I have been known to clear off my windshield with a hockey stick. Kind of does the trick, but not great for getting the snow and ice off of the hood and roof of the vehicle. Also like many of you, I have been known to drive with under half a tank of gas in the winter. Not a bad thing if you are going to a local rink close by, but we all know that some of the rinks we drive to in the winter are far from local, and can often be pretty remote.

When I attended the ILR Advanced Driving School on behalf of Goodyear, I learned lots of things that I was doing incorrectly, or not at all, when I was driving. Many of these things could impact the life of my car, while others could impact the safety of myself and my family. That’s why I found the “Winter Car Care Dos and Don’t’s” a bit of an eye opener, and also a practical checklist that I can use in the winter to be a better, and safer driver.
