If you’re like me and you’ve spent the majority of your adult life in a place that doesn’t have “real winters,” you probably panic at the thought of driving in snow or on ice. If you’re a fellow Floridian, you are more than likely a master at driving in heavy rain but don’t know how that will help you on snow or ice. The good news is that many of the precautions you take while driving in the rain are equally applicable to driving in “real winter” weather.
Some parents may be relieved at the fact that their teenager passed their Driver’s Education course. But what they don’t know, is that said Driver’s Ed courses do not make their teen an all-around safe driver.

Check out the infographic below for a quick look at what you can do to ensure tire safety!
