Top Tips for Driving in the Snow

Are you planning a winter adventure? If your answer is yes, then you need to keep reading. Driving on a snowy road has its hazards, but we have a few tips and tricks up our sleeves that we would like to share with you.  Slow down! Sometimes, it’s easy to forget that everything needs to be done slower in the snow, including accelerating, decelerating, and turning. When the pavement is covered in ice or snow, driving is less predictable, and caution is always crucial.  Don’t underestimate how long it is going to take you to brake. To ensure you stay in control over your vehicle, make sure you have enough time to stop safely.  Know your brakes! Most modern cars have anti-lock brake systems, so all you have to do is press the brake pedal as hard as you can, and your car will do the rest for you. Make sure to keep longer following distance between you and the next car.  All-Wheel Drive doesn’t always make a difference, especially in those spots of b ... read more

When and Where to Four Wheel Drive

If you bought a vehicle that is equipped with four-wheel drive (FWD), it seems probable that you are planning to drive through some tough, natural terrain, such as snow, ice, mud, or sand. If this sounds about right, then you must just be itching to embark on your FWD drive adventure.

Traveling Safely with a Trailer

From towing a horse across the country to bringing your work supplies to your next job site, trailers prove to be very useful. But even with all the advantages, we have to be mindful of how we drive our truck with a trailer. The team at Auto & Truck Accessories has a few, proven ideas on how to travel safely with a trailer. Before you embark on your journey, we recommend performing a pre-trip check. Make sure your trailer is safely and properly connected to the hitch, along with all brake lights and signals are working as they should. If everything looks good, you are ready to go. While you are out on the road, be cautious of how you make turns. Turns can be quite challenging to do with a trailer attached to your truck, so make sure you overshoot your turns. Don’t cut any corners, as you can put yourself, your passengers, and other drivers on the road at risk. Be aware of your trailer’s clearance as well. For instance, can you make it through that 12-foot tunnel app ... read more
