For many, the idea of driving in snow, hail, ice, fog or heavy rain conditions is pretty nerve racking. No one enjoys travelling in poor weather conditions, but when you have somewhere you need to be, it’s unfortunately inevitable.
With winter on the way, it’s a good idea for motorists to ensure that they have the information they need to stay safe on the roads. The last thing anyone wants is to be in a traffic collision – if you’re looking for a car accident lawyer in Valdosta then click the link – however if you adhere to some simple driving tips, then you should hopefully have the confidence to drive competently in adverse weather conditions. Read on for 6 simple tips for driving in bad weather.
It’s imperative that you drive to the weather conditions, so if your visibility is impaired due to fog or heavy rain, or the road is icy, and handling isn’t good then slowing down is the obvious choice. Drive at a speed that you’re comfortable at and don’t feel pressured by other drivers, everyone just wants to get to where they need to be in once piece.
Likewise if you find yourself stuck behind a driver who is being cautious due to the weather conditions, give them plenty of room to manoeuvre. The distance of two car lengths is often advised, as this gives you plenty of time to stop if the car in front suddenly slams on their brakes – it’ll stop you going into the back of them! Not only that, but you can also use their headlights to see what is coming up.
Turn into a skid
Loosing control of your car and feeling it begin to skid and turn is frightening. But remain calm. If you’re feeling the car move to the left, then remove your foot from the gas and turn the steering wheel gently in the same direction. The car should hopefully right itself.
After heavy rainfall there will probably be plenty of standing water around. And as you approach a large body of water, it won’t be possible to gauge how deep it is. Because of this it’s advisable to avoid driving through it. Even if you see other vehicles trying. Once water gets into your cars engine it’ll will shut off, leaving you potentially stranded.
Driven through a deep puddle? Dry your brakes off by gently pushing the pedal. This should dry them off and not jeopardise your stopping power.
Sometimes things happen that are out of your control. Whether that’s being stuck in traffic for hours due to an overturned lorry, or conditions that are so bad that you and other drivers are forced to sit until it has passed. Stock an emergency kit in your car that contains, blankets, torches, jump cables, a tow rope, dry food, water, tissues, and even an extra layer of warm clothes. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.

Sure, coupes and convertibles are super fun to drive, and sedans are usually a reliable, safe, and cost-efficient choice, but what if you need something just a little more rugged and spacious? SUVs seem to rule the roadways these days — and with good reason. They’ve got plenty of room for passengers, pets, and whatever...
Sure, coupes and convertibles are super fun to drive, and sedans are usually a reliable, safe, and cost-efficient choice, but what if you need something just a little more rugged and spacious? SUVs seem to rule the roadways these days — and with good reason. They’ve got plenty of room for passengers, pets, and whatever you need to transport from Point A to Point B, whether that’s groceries, sports equipment, antiques and tchotchkes you pick up on the cheap and sell on eBay or any other tools of your trade.
However, have you considered a pickup truck? It might not be the most intuitive choice of vehicle, at least if you don’t have a background or lifestyle that’s steeped in hard-working’, down-home truck culture. But they’re more versatile than you might think. Read on to learn the 5 signs that a pickup truck might be right for you.
This is a no-brainer, but since it’s such a huge advantage, we’re leading off with the number-one reason to buy a truck. It lets you transport all kinds of items: furniture, lumber, tools, camping supplies, a lawnmower or snowblower, a crate full of baby chicks, plants and saplings, a new BBQ grill, kegs of beer, and of course all those chips and cookies and crackers your wife buys in bulk at Costco.
Yes, buying a pickup truck means that you’ve just nominated yourself as the go-to guy when it comes to helping a friend move house or picking up that washer-dryer combo your MIL just bought on Craigslist. But think of all the pizza and beer you’ll score! And chances are that your truck will be so much fun to drive that you’ll jump at any opportunity that lets you put it to good use.
Time was, pickup trucks didn’t make a very good family car. That’s all changed now. Four-door trucks with plenty of passenger room are incredibly popular, and truck manufacturers are responding to their popularity by bringing out more models that can accommodate people as well as stuff. What’s more, they are comfortable, safe, and jam-packed with bells and whistles that will rival the features of any SUV or sedan.
If you opt for a truck with ample cab space and a backseat, you are going to sacrifice length when it comes to the truck bed. Even so, a four-door pickup truck is still going to beat out an SUV in terms of flexibility and hauling capacity in addition to being roomy enough for Mom, Dad, 2.5 kids, and the family dog.
Do you regularly shop at the Big and Tall store? Do people often ask “What’s the weather like up there?” or think they’ve got a rapier wit if they call you Shorty? Anyone who is tall or who just has long legs will appreciate the roominess of a truck. It can be difficult and uncomfortable to fold yourself up into a two-door hatchback or a sports car, but in a truck, you can literally stretch out.
That, in addition to the aforementioned features, makes for a comfy ride even on the longest or road trips.
If you mark time based on what game is in season, or if your idea of a perfect afternoon is spending time on the water with your trusty rod and reel, you — well, not to put too fine a point on it, but you literally need a pickup truck. After all, it’s not like you can throw that 12-point buck or string of trout in the backseat of your SUV. Sure, you could technically put them in the cargo area behind the seats, but most folks — or at least their wives — would draw the line at having dead creatures inside the vehicle at all.
Of course, you don’t have to be a hunter to appreciate the convenience of a truck bed. Anyone whose dogs gravitates towards mud puddles like a bee to honey will be grateful for a way to save their vehicle’s interior from those grubby paws and dirty fur.
People who live in climates that regularly experience heavy snowfall would do well to get a pickup truck — and a plow. That is especially true for folks who live off the beaten path in areas where municipalities might be slow to send plows or those who have a long driveway.
Having a truck and plow allows you to develop a nice little side hustle if you charge for your services — or to rack up plenty of karma points by pitching in to dig out neighbors, family members, and friends’ driveways on a pro bono basis.
Check out some used Ford F150s for sale, or look at some of the less well-known trucks that might suit your needs better. Either way, you’ve now got options for attaching a plow to the front and a hitch to the back.
By now, you’re probably getting pretty excited to start checking out pickup trucks and choosing one that’s a perfect fit for you and your family. While there are certainly many factors to take into consideration, we hope this article has opened your eyes to the possibilities presented by pickup trucks!

The Dendrobium D-1 electric hypercar concept originally debuted at the 2017 Geneva Motor Show with a futuristic design and promises of insane performance. After going quiet for a while, the automaker now announces plans to build a production version in the United Kingdom, and the firm claims that the machine makes an unfathomable 1,800 bhp and 1,475 pound-feet of torque.
It was the first time I saw this very cool hypercar at Goodwood, here’s our look around it.
