IF I JUST DRIVE SLOWLY I DON’T NEED SNOW TIRES… RIGHT?
Driving safely in winter does not necessarily mean driving super slowly. Too little speed can be just as dangerous as too much speed in winter conditions. If you can’t make it up a hill or keep up with traffic, you irritate other drivers and cause them to take unnecessary chances to get around you. If you slide through traffic lights, you are a risk to yourself and others. Remember, summer tires or worn tires have no place on ice or snow covered roads. If your vehicle is not properly equipped for the conditions, be responsible and keep it off the road.
