Exercise Caution While Driving in Winter

How do you normally spend time during the holiday season in winter? The first thought that comes to the minds of a lot of people is travel. Then there is the practice of drinking hot chocolate in the morning, along with sitting next to fires after dark, which could happen at a new destination. So, assuming that you will be traveling this winter as well, ensure that you practice caution while driving in the cold. 

How to drive safely in winter

Severe weather can be difficult and frightening for many travelers. You need to be prepared for any kind of eventuality during this season. Although it isn’t possible to anticipate everything, the following basic precautions will keep you safe more often than not: 

  1. Always plan – You might be planning about the different food items and clothes you need to take, but are you giving your vehicle attention? It needs to be in top shape to handle tough winter conditions. Check your smartphone map and find out the safe roads at that time. Keep a windshield scraper with you, to clear out the snow.
  2. Start fresh, be alert- Make sure you start after having properly rested the previous night. It would be a good idea to fall asleep early, for you to be fully alert during the day. Never let yourself suffer from extreme fatigue, as it is the main cause behind several road accidents.  Avoid driving in the night, as snow would make it difficult to navigate a path in some places.
  3. Use apps- Download suitable apps for the road to help yourself out of sticky situations
  4. Defensive driving- Allow impatient and aggressive drivers to pass you by on winter roads. Drive defensively and do not let any vehicle hurry you up unnecessarily in the winter.
  5. Control speeds – Keep safe distances and drive at speeds to react in time if the vehicles ahead brake suddenly. Reckless driving is a strict no-no, and it is even more dangerous in winter. Your vehicle will always struggle for grip in snow, and so do not complicate the situation further by driving too fast.
  6. Safety first- ABS, Traction Control can only help you in certain situations, but you’ll be safest if you wear seat belts. Encourage other passengers to wear them too. 
  7. Avoid distractions – Resist the urge to send or receive a text message while driving. By texting or by speaking on the phone while driving, you are also putting other vehicles at risk.
  8. Do not drink and drive- Always remember to not drink if you are the one driving, as there’ll be many such occasions in winter. Hire a designated driver if necessary or ask a sober friend or relative to drive. Consider staying over at a friend or relative’s place if you don’t have a designated driver.
  9. Accident coverage- Find out about your accident coverage options to get peace of mind in such unfortunate circumstances. You can get in touch with a reliable company to know about this in detail. 
  10. Prevent theft- A few simple techniques like storing valuables in the trunk and parking in familiar areas will help prevent vehicle theft. If you have a garage, remember to use it.

Iconic Halloween Movie Cars

It's Halloween, and all throughout the world, pumpkins are being cut, kids are creating homemade costumes, and loads of candy is being eaten. With so many spooky things to catch the eye this time of year, it can be easy to forget about the iconic cars that have come from previous Halloween-time blockbusters. 

What follows is a collection of four of the most iconic cars featured in spooky films over the years.

 

The Munsters’ Koach

The Munsters’ “Koach”, which was produced using 3 Ford Model T bodies and was more than 18 feet in length, continued to be a popular show that ran over two years for 20 episodes. The characters were defined as being very spooky and odd. Obviously, the concept was that they were a typical American family, so it seemed well and good for the Koach to be something extraordinary. The V8 motor was pulled from an AC Cobra to add a little more power. So, behind all the bells and whistles, the Koach really was the real deal!

 

Ghostbusters’ Ecto-1 

The Ecto-1, similar to the Ghostbusters franchise, was the ideal vehicle for busting phantoms and different supernatural entities. If you think about utility cars, this was a prime example. This vehicle was a combo of an ambulance and traditional car and was the ideal kind of auto for the group, with enough space to carry all the vital gear, including Ecto Goggles, P.K.E. Meters, and Proton Packs! While the original plan was to make the vehicle black, with several of the movie scenes being recorded around evening time, the vehicle was changed over to white, and film history was changed forever.

 

Scooby Doo’s Mystery Machine

One of the most conspicuous television and film vehicles ever, the Mystery Machine, was the vehicle picked by 'Puzzle Inc' for this adventure series. The van, owned by Fred, is a blend of a couple of sixties-style vans, while still remaining timeless in its design. The vehicle can be seen full of all sorts of gears; however, they have a full table and seats set up in the back for the entire group to kick back and solve crimes. While the general tone of the show was more satire than dreadful, the otherworldly components of the arrangement, and the unbelievable status of the van itself, earns the Mystery Machine a spot on this elite list.

 

The Creepy Coupe from Wacky Races

Wacky Races is a very much cherished kid's show of the past. The show itself isn't unpleasant or creepy by any stretch of the imagination. However, one machine, the Creepy Coupe, is amongst the eleven cars participating in the race for “The Wackiest Racer” title. The vehicle is a funeral wagon that consists of loads of creepy animals, including bats, phantoms, and obviously, a huge mythical dragon up top, which blows fire towards any unfortunate racer in front of it. Wacky Races only ran for an unimpressive seventeen episodes. However, the Creepy Coupe is, by a wide margin, the spookiest vehicle in the race and on the screen.

We may not have the Mystery Machine or the Creepy Coupe, but we do have one of the highest quality selections of new and pre-owned vehicles in the greater Charlotte, NC area. Reach out to one of our representatives today to get behind the wheel of your next ride.
