Winter Tire Safety Reminder for Snowbirds
Something to think about this winter: if you install dedicated winter tires on your vehicle but then plan a driving trip to the sunny south, do you leave the winter tires on, or gamble with summer tires? While winter tires will wear slightly on the journey, road conditions in the north and central U.S. are frequently as bad as in Canada. And consider these factors:
- The severity and frequency of recent extreme weather events.
- The ability of local crews to respond in storms decreases the further south you drive.
- Most southern drivers don’t have winter driving experience, so give yourself an advantage.
Don’t risk being stranded or worse. Keep winter tires on your vehicle November to April!
