Staying safe out on Buffalo’s roads this winter

Whether it’s been something you’ve been looking forward to or dreading, the winter weather season has begun here in Buffalo. While drivers in this area are no strangers to snow, ice and cold, this can be a very good time of the year for everyone to go over winter weather driving safety tips.

Safety reminders can be helpful to even the most experienced of winter drivers. And safety is such an important thing to keep in the forefront during the winter weather season, given the major challenges snowy and icy conditions can pose out on the roads.

Dangers of Distracted Driving

Distracted driving is a leading cause of traffic accidents in the United States, with nine people killed and more than 1,000 injured daily nationwide. Distracted driving is a big problem, it’s also entirely preventable.

Distractions while driving come in many forms but they all cause a driver to take away his or her attention from the important task at hand. Eating, using a cell phone or checking your navigation system all increase the chances of being involved in a motor vehicle crash. Additionally, factors such as passengers, pets, scenery and other drivers can all serve as distractions.
