Land Rover Winter Safety Tips

2022 Land Rover Defender in snow


On the rare occasion that it snows or gets extremely icy in Huntington, it’s important that you have the necessary information to stay safe on the road. You don’t want to let the weather keep you from achieving the tasks you’ve set for the day! To make sure you can move smoothly through your day, we are going to give you some snow driving tips so you’re prepared to take on the extreme weather conditions of Parkersburg roads! Read below for more!

Preparing Your Vehicle for Inclement Winter Weather

While you bundle up to prepare for unusually cold winters, you need to get your vehicle ready too! Make sure you have good brakes and healthy brake fluid in your vehicle so you can stop or slow down your vehicle with ease. You want to ensure that your engine will run smoothly, so have our service department replace the oil before the weather gets too bad. Lastly, schedule an appointment to get your tires rotated or get brand new ones that will give you good traction on Charleston roads. 

Be sure to check your weather app or news station before getting on the road so you know what the roads are like before driving. You don’t want to find out the road conditions as you’re driving to work. If you don’t feel comfortable driving, call your job to see if it’s possible to work from home that day. If it rained or snowed that day and you know it’s going to be below freezing that night, go to your local store to pick up some salt or sand. Both will reduce the amount of ice on your driveway so you and your family aren’t slipping and sliding to get into your %%di_make%% vehicle. 

How to Safely Drive in Wheeling! 

Several important factors make driving in inclement weather dangerous, but the main one is the lack of adjustment by the driver. Drivers must take extra precautions during these times, not drive as if it’s business per usual. We listed some tips below to help you feel confident driving during the winter months, and to help you keep you and your family safe: 

  • Avoid rush hour
  • Drive slightly below the speed limit 
  • Know alternative routes 
  • Leave early 
  • Take your time to get to your destination
  • Obey the rules of the road (look for rules specific to the city) 
  • Use traffic apps like Waze
  • Brake early 
  • Follow the local DOT and police department on Twitter/social media
