  • Check to be sure your gas tank is full if bad weather is predicted while you are traveling- we recommend staying OFF the road during winter weather events that will cause icy or snowy conditions.
  • Be sure you have all season tires before the winter weather arrives!
  • Check to see if your tires are properly inflated: under or over inflated tires can be driving hazard during wet or slippery conditions.
  • Keep a blanket, flashlight, first aid kit and small tool kit and a small shovel in the trunk in case of an emergency during winter weather.
  • Drive a safe distance from the vehicles in front of you to allow for adequate stopping time.
  • Follow posted speed limits, especially on ramps and windy roads.

Maintaining a safe driving record will lead to a reduced car insurance premium – it pays to drive safe! Contact a MAIF agent to discuss your insurance policy and see how you can save money.
