With the arrival of winter weather, it’s important to take stock of your car and its safety features. Blizzards and ice storms can make driving treacherous, so it’s important to be prepared. Here are some tips for keeping your car safe in New England winters.
- Adaptive headlights: Headlights that adapt and rotate to light in the direction you turn can come with either a rotating headlight system or cornering lights. They snap on when turning left, right – it’s great for any car driving during winter weather!
- Forward collision warning and emergency braking: This technology uses a combination of cameras, sensors and lasers to detect hazards including stopped vehicles in the road. The anti-lock braking system is employed when danger appears imminent so that you can stop quickly without losing valuable time or causing an accident with other drivers who don’t have this safety feature on their cars too.
- Heated mirrors: Heated mirrors are a great way to melt the ice on your car before driving through snow. They help you see more clearly, and they also prevent any accumulation of freezing rain or slush that may occur during these conditions!
- Snow tires: The best way to stay safe on winter roads is by having the right equipment. If you don’t know how much snow or ice there will be, then it’s important that your car has all of its necessary parts- including tires! Tires are what make driving in slippery conditions possible because they provide traction when others cannot; without them we would just glide along with no control over our direction changes which could lead us into danger quickly like situations where cars might swerve into an opposing lane unexpectedly.
- Blind-spot monitoring: Blind spot monitoring is a great safety feature that can help you avoid collisions and save lives! It’s especially important when driving on snowy roads, as it may detect vehicles in your mirrors. If there’s an obstacle between yourself and what’s ahead (like another car), this system will warning with audible alerts so please keep both hands at ten centimeters from the wheel without adjusting anything else until they go away because doing so could make swerving into another lane too quick which might cause loss control over loose traction due slippery surfaces
As the snow starts to fly, it is important to remember that safety should be your number one priority when hitting the roads. Make sure you are up-to-date on the latest safety features available in your car and consider getting winter tires if you live in an area that sees a lot of snow.
