Winter is one of the most hazardous times for drivers. Not only do weather conditions create visual and driving hazards, but you could also be stranded with no power in the middle of a snowstorm. Driving in the winter can be very dangerous, especially in Colorado, so here at Economy Nissan in Durango, CO we have created Winter Driving Tips!
- Stick to the route you know best: sometimes it can be a good idea to check the web for current weather conditions before you leave for your daily commute. This way you can avoid accidents and if you get stuck, describe exactly where you are.
- Drink lots of water and eat lots of food: keep an extra water bottle and snacks in your vehicle in case you do become stuck somewhere. Dehydration in winter is very common and can also cause fatigue. If you are stranded in your car for a few hours it is best to have high-energy food available.
- Pack a winter travel safety bag: safety bags can come in handy when you least expect it. An extra phone, charged phone battery, heavy blankets, Advil, flashlight, matches, portable radio, first aid kit, and even a map can help save your life.
- Slow down: leave early and don’t rush. Reducing speed by 50% is usually a good rule, as long as you are not going too slow and lose momentum.
- Use your lights: turning your lights on is a good idea to help others see you.
- Lighten up your grip: if you are too nervous you may start gripping your steering wheel to hard and lose control. Make sure to breath and keep a loose grip on the wheel.
- Schedule a car maintenance checkup: you will want to make sure your spark plugs are new, your battery is strong, lights are working properly and there are no cracks in your timing belt. For a full list visit our Economy Nissan Dealership or call (877)500-5904 for more information.
- If you are stuck, do not leave your vehicle: it is best to stay as warm as possible. Do not chance getting lost in a snowstorm. Also, make sure that nothing is blocking your exhaust pipe so the carbon monoxide does not build up in your vehicle.
The best tip of all is to not travel in these hazardous conditions. Although, if you find you have to drive in these conditions make sure you are prepared. This knowledge and preparation could help save your life or even someone else’s.

The IIHS ranks vehicles into four categories: Good, Acceptable, marginal and poor. The vehicle is placed into each of these categories based on five test categories composed of moderate overlap frontal crash, small overlap frontal crash, side impact, rollover and rear impact.

Have you ever been late and stuck behind a bus at a railroad crossing or have experienced a bus suddenly stopping at a railroad crossing? Chances are you have and sometimes this can be frustrating. Though it may seem like this is a meaningless task with all of the new technology and railroad track warnings, there is a reason busses do this, which includes making safety a top priority.
About forty years ago, seatbelts were not even required let alone the invention of airbags. All of the other road safety precautions were minor and not a major priority. It was not that long ago when busses were not required to even stop at railroad crossings, let alone open their doors for a few seconds and listen for a train.
In 1938 on December 1, an event took place creating the regulation of busses to open their doors at railroad crossings. This particular night, in Salt Lake City, a nasty blizzard took place obstructing many peoples’ view. The bus driver stopped at the track, but could not see the oncoming freight train due to the snow and unfortunately the bus was hit by the train. only 14 of the 40 passengers survived, who all noted they did not see a train coming due to the blizzard as well. The bus driver knew the train schedules, so assumed everything would be fine. This night the train was delayed due to the weather and happened to run into the bus.
For this reason bus drivers are required to open their doors at railway crossings. Take a look at some of their other safety precautions school bus drivers have to take next time you are stuck behind one. You may end up very thankful these precautions are in enforced. The Economy Nissan Dealership of Durango, CO near Aztec, NM finds it important to inform their customers of the importance of safety. Next time you are caught driving in foggy or snowy weather, remember this story and how rolling down your window can help protect you and your passengers.
