How do I prepare for winter driving?

Lucas Gulino,

Not so long ago, we saw on the roads these trucks that kept the landscapes and green spaces alive. These vehicles equipped with several equipment and accessories that cut the trees or maintained the road, change now from another equipment’s. The snow plows take place to clear away these new roads, which will become snow-covered and ice-free.

 Winter tires? Studded tires? Chains?

The first snow or ice is often unpredictable, and we are each time surprised by the difficulties that come with it. The daily is upset by these bad weathers, but we can always better prepare for it. Before the winter weather strikes, you need to know the laws applicable in your region. You can find European winter regulations at https://www.continental-tires.com/transport/knowhow/european-winter-regulations.

Commercial drivers, firefighters, fleet managers…

Everybody and every business are impacted in different ways depending on the situation. For a commercial driver as well as for the fleet manager, being stuck on theroad because of severe winter weather means a missed deadline, a loss of turnover and may even be a lost customer ... This can be more serious when it comes to firefighters or other emergency services. Not being able to go to the mission site can be a real risk for a human life ... Snowy roads, not a question of skills driving. No matter what the challenge or issue. Driving on snowy or icy roads is not a question of skills, but of prudence, planning and anticipation.

The main points to check when the winter is approaching are: 

  • Is my vehicle equipped with the appropriate tires in my area?
  • Have my equipment been checked and tested before taking the road?
  • How do the roads look the wholeway? 

These questions are essential when planning your trip. We've also got you ready Five tips for efficient driving when the winter weather strikes. We invite you to consult them below:
