Three Tips for Florida Winter Driving

Posted on: December 22, 2019
Florida Winter / Civil Trial Attorneys / Orlando Oviedo Winter Springs Altamonte Winter Park Lawyers / Beers and Gordon P.A.With the first day of winter already come and gone in Florida, a cool, but reasonable Saturday, the issues we face on the road may not be snow banks and repetitively icy highways, but there are a few things we still should consider when it comes to driving safely.

1. Have you checked the pressure in your tires? As temperatures drop, even by 10 or 20 degrees, air becomes more dense, which could sneak up on a driver if they’re not keeping tires in check. Most shops allow for a free inspection.

2. Lights, lights, lights. And by that, we don’t mean Christmas lights or street lights. We mean your headlights. Turn them on earlier than you normally might. With shorter days, the night comes in quickly, and drivers need to see you.

3. Enjoy the holiday parties, but don’t sacrifice our safety or your driving record to get behind the wheel drunk. Between family, friends, and Uber, there are other ways to get home. Take care of yourself, and us, while having fun.
