The snowy weather in New York is especially troublesome for many drivers. Even if you are accustomed to driving in these conditions, you must ensure that you brush up on some common safety tips. This can help you remain safe, but only if you implement them on each trip.

You have to ensure that you are mentally and physically able to drive. This means that you aren't fatigued, distracted or impaired. When any of those conditions are present, you run the risk of not being able to make decisions and react in an appropriate manner to what's going around your vehicle.

Make sure that you are taking your time can also help. Trying to rush about can mean that you take unsafe risks. If there is snow on the ground, remember that it will take you longer to stop and accelerate due to the slipperiness of the road's surface. Additionally, you shouldn't use cruise control while there is snow on the ground.

Always keep at least half a tank of gas in your vehicle. Not only is this helpful if you are stranded and need to run the heater, but it also prevents the gas lines from freezing. This is also a good time to take a look at the wipers to ensure they are in good shape and fill up the washer reservoir with a formula that is meant for freezing temperatures.

Even if you are driving safely, you might still be involved in a crash. Protect your right to seek compensation if this occurs so you can take legal action against the driver who struck you.
