Winter Driving Safety Tips

Winter in Chicago means snow, ice, and dangerous road conditions. The Chicago auto accident attorneys at Steinberg, Goodman & Kalish are dedicated to protecting the rights of auto accident victims and to promoting safe driving conditions.

The following winter driving safety tips are suggested by AAA, the Weather Channel, and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):


  • When driving on snowy or icy roads, reduce your speed and allow plenty of room between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you.

  • Brake gently to avoid skidding.

  • Make sure that your headlights are on, even during the daytime.

  • Maintain a clean and clear windshield.

  • Avoid using cruise control.

  • Use extra caution when driving on bridges, overpasses, and infrequently traveled roads as they can freeze first.

  • Do not pass snow plows and sanding trucks as the drivers of these vehicles have limited visibility and the road is often more treacherous in front of them than behind them.

  • Avoid texting, emailing, talking on a cell phone, or other forms of distracted driving.

  • Use preventive driving techniques, such as using turn signals before switching lanes.

  • Prepare for winter driving by checking the vehicle’s battery, tire treat, windshield wipers, washer fluid levels, and antifreeze.

  • If your car becomes stuck or stalls, do not panic. Stay in the vehicle and put bright markers on the antenna to alert other drivers of your presence.

  • Always wear a seat belt.


Winter weather conditions often lead to rear-end collisions since drivers are unable to stop in time because of slick roads. Rear-end collisions can cause serious head, neck and spinal cord injuries. When a vehicle is at rest and is struck from behind, the forces can cause the body to violently pitch forward, which can cause injuries that might take weeks, months or years of physical therapy to overcome.
