Jack Frost is dutifully nipping (rather, biting) at your nose this time of year. As you know, the coldest weather means more accidents on the road. Snow, sleet, ice — it’s all those gloomy factors that can get you into trouble. That’s why it’s in your best interests to keep up with the hashtag #WinterDrivingTip, employed by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and a host of other agencies and public service providers to inform drivers of the safe winter driving tips we’re all invariably bound to forget.
Go forth, social media junkies, and take advantage of the benefits of social! (Not while you’re driving, of course.)
#WinterDrivingTip: The road behind an active snow plow is safer to drive on. Stay behind the plow or use caution when passing.
