Here are a few winter driving tips to keep you safe and brakes in optimal condition! 


Avoid Tailgating

It’s easy to find yourself closely following the vehicle in front of you. However, when there is snow and ice on the roads it is important to give yourself more space between your car and others around you. By doing so you give yourself more time to slow down should the car in front of you stop. To maintain a safe distance between you and the person in front of you, simply slow down a little bit until you feel you are at a safe distance. 


Pump your Brakes

Should you find yourself slipping and sliding on an icy road, the number one thing you need to remember is to pump your brakes rather than slamming down your foot. To pump your breaks, continuously press down and release your foot from the break. This will give your vehicle better traction on slippery roads and will save your brake pads from getting worn through faster.

Consider Slowing Down

Although it is simple, one of the best ways to preserve your brakes and keep yourself safe in the winter is to drive slower. Not only will reducing your speed give you more control over your car but it will allow you more time to react to other vehicles. Additionally, by slowing down you minimize slamming on the brakes which can cause you to lose control.
