Prepare Your Car for Winter
The snow, ice, and cold of winter are all hard on vehicles. When equipped with the right parts, though, your automobile will fare better in the foul weather. Before temperatures drop any more, make sure to:
- put snow tires on your vehicle to improve traction on slippery roads
- install winter wipers on your vehicle so you’ll be able to see in snowstorms
- replace your vehicle’s battery if it’s old to ensure smooth starts in the coldest weather

You may also want to adjust your auto insurance coverage for the winter season. As driving conditions worsen, the chances of being in an accident increase. In addition to driving more cautiously, you can also protect yourself by improving your insurance coverages.
