Winter Driving

With the cold Arctic blast on it's way we need to take a few minutes and examine the condition of your vehicle. Here in Southern California we are not very experienced when it comes to winter driving. Take a look at your tires for decent tread and proper inflation, make sure your windshield wipers are not cracked and mounted correctly. If you plan on visiting the snow areas you should plan on carrying snow chains and have a full tank of gas prior to your trip. Conditions will be cold so be aware of black ice and slick roadways you may encounter over the next few days. It is very important to also check current road conditions to make sure you can make it to your destination safely.
