Braving the Cold? Here Are Driving Tips for the Winter Season

If you are hitting the roads this winter, it is important to be prepared for the hazardous weather. Here are a few driving tips to help keep you safe while on the road:

  • Make sure your car is properly winterized ideally before the season begins. This includes checking your tires, anti-freeze levels, and windshield washer fluid.
  • Stay aware of the weather conditions and plan your drive accordingly. If there is a chance of inclement weather, be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility.
  • Drive slowly and carefully, especially on icy or snow-covered roads. Accelerate and brake slowly, and use caution when turning.
  • Keep a safe distance between yourself and the cars in front of you, especially on slippery roads. This will give you time to stop if necessary.
  • If you get stuck in snow or ice, do not panic. Call for help if you need assistance.
  • Make sure your cellphone is fully charged in case of emergency.
  • Have a winter survival kit in your car in case of an emergency. This should include blankets, a flashlight, food and water, and a first-aid kit.
  • Be aware of black ice; this is a thin layer of ice that can be difficult to see on the road. When driving on black ice, take extra care to slow down and use caution when turning or braking.
  • Watch out for pedestrians and cyclists who may be braving the cold weather outdoors. Give them plenty of space when passing them on the road.
  • Follow all traffic laws, and wear your seat belt at all times while driving, even if you are just traveling a short distance.
  • Take frequent breaks during long trips so that you can stay alert behind the wheel. Get up and stretch your legs every few hours, and make sure to drink plenty of fluids to stay hydrated.
  • If possible, avoid driving during rush hour; this will help reduce traffic congestion and allow you to reach your destination more quickly and safely.
  • Know your alternate route. Even if you have made this trip a hundred times before, you may encounter poor weather or extreme congestion which requires you to take a new route. Knowing your alternate options before you leave can help ensure you stay calm and know how to adjust your route.

Why Clients Choose Deborah

Heather A
I have known Deb for years now and it all started in 2009 when I got hurt and needed legal help with my workers comp. I randomly chose Deb because of the things I read on her website and I liked that she had a take charge attitude about just about everything. She out-lawyered someone and got me more in a settlement for that and then also worked with me on another case and won that one as well for me. If you get to know Deb and her personal story, you will get to know an amazing single mom who has had her own struggles and has come out so much stronger. She will fight for you if you do your part as a client and follow her guidance. I have now used two women lawyers in Media and three men and I actually found the two women far more effective and both won my cases that the men lost. Without Deb and my other lawyer winning the cases for me that they did - I could have found myself disabled for good with no money to pay for the life I live because I can’t work now. I credit my ability to be able to eat and have transportation and all. I couldn’t be more grateful for their hard work they did for me. Deb has won two of my cases and I would absolutely refer others to her for the same kinds of cases and I would use her again if I ever needed her help again!
Daveen Carpenter
Deborah's team went above and beyond to get my case settled quickly. I am forever grateful
Rebecca Porter
If you ever need a worker’s compensation attorney, I highly suggest using Deborah Truscello. I had a work accident injury and was referred to Deborah. She was with me every step of the way, with this long-drawn-out process. She was there any time I had questions or needed advice on my rehabilitation. Now my case is settled. I am very happy how things turned out and I owe it all to her. I can't thank her enough. I will use her again if I ever need too.
Jackson Jones
Deborah is an excellent lawyer. She was professional, knowledgeable, and made me and my case feel important. She was always accessible and answered all of my questions. I would definitely recommend Debbie to anyone injured at work and in need of legal services.
I am a client of Deborah Truscello and also a woman of color. Deborah Truscello is not a bigot nor is she a racist. I hired Ms. Truscello back in 2016 for a very nasty custody case against a crazy man who has a history of dragging all his children through the court system. Ms. Truscello has been nothing but professional and well organized. She is very reliable and always available. I could contact her any time of the day or night and she is always responsive to my text messages, calls, and emails. If you are considering hiring her as your attorney I highly recommend you schedule a consultation and see for yourself you will not be disappointed.
