Road Hazards in Bruceton Mills
The average commute time for Bruceton Mills residents is about 30 minutes, which means that the large majority of residents leave Bruceton Mills to go to work. This means that many of these people will use Route 26 or Interstate 68 to get to work, and in this area, winter weather can make driving treacherous. While avoiding driving during inclement weather is preferable, most people still must get to work no matter what the weather is. Here are some tips from AAA to help you stay safer on snowy roads.
Gently apply the gas and brake. Don’t try to stop and start too quickly as this can make the vehicle begin sliding and lose control.
Keep a safe distance behind the vehicle in front of you. The recommended distance is eight to ten seconds. This gives extra time for stopping.
Read the owner’s manual on your vehicle to learn about how to best use your brakes on snowy roads.
Use extra caution on hills. Gently go up hills, and slowly come down. This will help to reduce spinning and sliding.
Slow down. It is never safe to drive fast on snowy roads. It makes it much more likely for the vehicle to get out of the driver’s control.
