Colorado Winter Driving Tips for both New and Seasoned Drivers!
By Renee Leon
Winter driving tips have been brought into SHARP FOCUS as Edgar and I are teaching our youngest daughter, Maci, to drive! There are many important tips to impart as we navigate driving on potentially slippery conditions. Here are a few Winter Driving reminders for us all as Colorado continues to deliver winter weather.
Slow Down - Keep your distance; in wintry conditions you should increase your distance to 8-10 seconds.
Stay Alert - Know what's happening around you; frequently check your mirrors so you can react safely.
Be Noticed - Make sure other drivers SEE you and what you want to communicate (turn signals and brake lights). Be sure all your vehicle's lights are working properly. In this video, I share a tip on how to check your lights, even if you don't have a helper!
Visibility Matters - You never appreciate your wipers and windshield cleaning fluid until you NEED them. Make sure your vehicle’s wipers are in good condition; they typically need to be replaced every 6-12 months.
Cruise Control Not Advised - Do not use your cruise control when driving on any slippery.
If you have any questions or concerns about your vehicle’s winter performance, be sure to discuss them with Edgar or Jose. They’re ready and able to help you be prepared!
And wish us and Maci luck as she prepares for her driving test this April!
What’s New at the Shop
Throughout the month of March we are donating 10% of all brake-related work to the Village Exchange Center! Why? Great question!
- We love our community and are committed to giving back.
- Renee has heard great things about the The Village Exchange Center and was inspired by their founder during one of her Arts + Business Connection committee meetings at the Aurora Chamber.
- Because we can!
So please help us to spread the word! Brakes = Community Benefits!
Bring your vehicle for a FREE Brake Inspection. IF you need brake-related work, we will donate 10% of the proceeds to the Village Exchange Center. All means all - brake pads, rotors, hoses, calipers and brake fluid flush! And per usual, all our work comes with our 3 Year/36,000 Mile Nationwide Warranty!
The Village Exchange Center is a non-profit organization formed to serve immigrants and refugees in the Aurora/Denver metro area. As a community center and multi-faith worship space, they seek to celebrate cultural and religious diversity by creating an inclusive environment where residents from all backgrounds interact, share, and develop together. They offer youth and adult programs and services as well as cultural and multi-faith activities—both directly and through their collocated partners.
The overarching goal is creating bridges between people and communities, both locally and globally.
