Prepping Your Vehicle For New Haven Winters

Sooner than we would like to think, the cold, icy and snowy weather will be upon us. It’s important to inspect and prepare your car before hitting New Haven roadways. Follow these safety tips before heading out.

  1. Clear the snow. Keep a long brush or ice scraper in your car to clear snow. It is unlawful in Connecticut to operate a vehicle with snow on the roof of your car or truck.
  2. Check your tires. Inspect their tread and if you need to, install snow tires. Tire pressure plays a big part in road safety.
  3. Check fluids. Keep an eye on your vehicle’s fluid levels during the colder months to avoid engine malfunction.
  4. Clear your view. Cracked windshields and worn wipers can impair visibility.
