Lincoln, NE -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/11/2019 -- As the premier collision repair and auto body shop serving Lincoln, NE, and the surrounding areas, The Kustom Shop provides professional automotive repair, painting, and a range of other custom services for their customers throughout the region. Now, their team of trusted experts is offering advice on how to safely handle driving in the rigorous conditions of Nebraska's winter, including snow, ice, and more.
Before heading out to drive in any adverse weather conditions, it's crucial that drivers first prepare their vehicles. This includes topping off all fluids, such as oil, brake fluid, and ensuring that the gas tank is always at least half full to prevent freezing. Additionally, the tire pressure should be checked regularly, as the temperature can have an effect on it. An emergency kit with a blanket, flashlight, and other essential items is a necessity, in any season or weather.
When driving in severe winter conditions like through snow and ice, it's critical to go slowly, no matter what. Accelerating and decelerating should be done carefully and slowly to retain traction. The focus should always be on the road, not the radio, phone, or any surroundings. Also, drivers are advised to leave at least ten seconds between them and the vehicle in front of them, and to never use cruise control when driving through snow or ice.
