Happy New Year!

At R Hobbs Insurance Agency, we want you to have a safe and happy new year. Here are some winter driving tips.

Keep your headlights on in bad weather, even during the day. This is not only to help you see but to help other drivers see you.

Pack a winter emergency kit for your car: flashlight, batteries, cell phone charger, blanket, water, snacks, gloves, boots and a first-aid kit.

Keep your car maintained. Make sure you have enough gas, windshield fluid and antifreeze. Have your brakes checked.

The safest following distance on normal, dry pavement is three to four seconds. On ice or snow, allow eight to 10 seconds of following time.

Keep extra windshield wiper fluid in your trunk, and make sure the wiper blades are in good condition.

If you can’t see a snowplow’s side mirrors, the driver can’t see you. Stay at least 2-3 car lengths behind, and watch for sudden stops or turns.

Don’t forget to clear snow from your vehicle before driving – including the roof. (The drivers behind you will thank you.)

Be extra careful driving on bridges, ramps, overpasses and in shaded areas. They tend to freeze first.

If you get stuck, clear the area around your exhaust pipe, then turn on the car and use the heater for about 10 minutes every hour while waiting for help.

Did you purchase optional Towing and Labor coverage with your auto policy? This covers towing and labor for disabled vehicles, not just after accidents. Contact us at (847) 680-0888 or chris@rhobbsinsurance.com, to make sure you have this coverage.
