Southern California Winter Driving Safety Tips Part 2: Icy Driving

If you plan on driving outside of the temperate bubble that surrounds Southern California, you need to know the potential dangers of road conditions in the area you are driving.

The ice buildup in some communities is too much to handle, resulting in tragic motor vehicle accidents. The traffic jams alone are cause for alarm, let alone the loss of life, injuries and trauma as a result of these deadly collisions. If you plan on driving in icy conditions over the winter months, here are some tips for you.

Southern California Winter Driving Safety Tips Part 1: Equipment

Fortunately, living in sunny southern California allows many of us to drive in pristine conditions year-round. Unfortunately, this means the vast majority of Los Angeles drivers are woefully under-prepared to drive in snowy or icy conditions. Many drivers fail to modify their driving habits to account for the slippery and unpredictable nature of winter driving, causing avoidable accidents and endangering everyone. Whether driving on the roads of Big Bear or Mammoth Lakes on your winter vacation, you need to be prepared to combat adverse road conditions as well as unprepared drivers.

Holiday & Christmas Eve 2016 Travel Tips

If we learned anything from Thanksgiving this year, we learned to politely discuss our politics, and stay off the roads the day before major Holidays.

This poses many public safety concerns as traffic increases and the probability more drunk drivers enter our streets and highways. So what can we do to reduce traffic and reduce the frequency of holiday and Christmas Eve accidents? Below we highlight some options to help you avoid becoming a holiday statistic.

Do Your Homework On Rental Car Safety, Too

When choosing a car to drive, your safety in the case of an accident should be a top priority. The IIHS, The Institute for Highway Safety, produces easy to understand safety ratings for different collision types as well a variety of safety features. Modern vehicles can come with smarter airbags, auto-braking, collision warning sensors and alarms, lane drifting detection and even smart cruise control. While these features are fantastic technologies that can save lives, people still fall victim to avoidable collisions.
