Not sure who needs to hear this 🤔, but we've compiled some winter driving safety tips for you.

1. It's snow, DON'T LOSE YOUR MINDS!!!

TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS!!!
2. Two inches of snow is just as slippery as two feet of snow. You're gonna have to increase your stopping distance.

3. Like coloring, it's important to stay between the lines.

4. Just like middle school, no PDA. NO TOUCHING ALLOWED!!! Cars are forbidden from touching each other.

TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS!!!

5. You may have forgot, but cars love ditches. If you have questions see #3.

6. 4 wheel drive doesn't equal 4 wheel stop.

7. All wheel drive or 4 wheel drive doesn't make your suburatank invincible or give you the right to drive like a jackwagon. Just, no.

We can do this people 🤞👍.

TURN ON YOUR HEADLIGHTS!!!

Agreed mike,but most rice burners don't have auto lights on,just like they don't have daytime running lights.

'zactly mikey. This headlight thing is a longtime pet peeve of mine. Wish the manufacturers would standardize the way they operate. Yesterday when it was snowing hard, some clown on Hwy 13 in a gray car was trailing a semi while I was waiting at the stop sign. Car had no lights on. There was a plume of moisture coming off the truck tires along with the swirling snowfall. Had I not looked twice, I never would've seen the damn car. Some cars, like our old '99 Regal the lights are on all the time, including the tail lights. The wife's Fort has automatic lights but they don't come on until the light conditions are pretty low. On my charcoal gray Dotch pickup, the running lights do come on automatically but the tail lights do not. If conditions are at all questionable, I turn the lights on manually. Better to see and be seen rather than becoming a statistic trying to save money on headlights. :happy1:

Yup may as well have headlights and taillights on all of the time but have a switch to turn them off whilst hunting etc.
