Tips for driving in the Colorado snow

It’s no secret that Denver’s population has grown these past couple of years! That being said, not everyone moving to our beautiful state has had the exhilarating experience of driving in the snow.  Even our very own Colorado natives can struggle sometimes! Below, we will give you some important tips and tricks that will allow you to drive through the snow safely and comfortably! 

  1. Take your time.  Make sure you plan to leave for your location earlier than usual, accidents are more prevalent during the winter, and they often occur when people are rushing to get to their destination.

  2. Maintain a greater distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.

  3. Winter tires are almost a must - the next best thing is all-weather tires.  Tires can save your life on those passes!

  4. Clear ALL the snow from your vehicle before taking on the road; snow can often impair your vision if your vehicle is not properly cleaned off.

  5. Fill your vehicle with a strong anti-freeze concentration; this way it won’t freeze on your windshield. 

  6. Accelerate and decelerate slowly; rushing can cause you to slide.
