Are you planning on driving anywhere this week for Thanksgiving 2013?
Besides making sure that your Central Oregon Car Insurance Policy is current, it’s important to make sure that you are completely prepared for your journey by doing the following:
Check Your Tires
Depending on where you’re planning on driving this week you could face the prospect of driving through snow, especially if you are driving to towns that are higher elevations like: Madras, Sisters, Sunriver or over Mount Hood to go into Portland.
Your tires should be all-season and ready to carry you safely through any weather condition, and you should have a set of chains in your vehicle as well just in case there is heavy snow on the ground and you’re required to chain up before being allowed to drive on the roads of Central Oregon.
Pack an Emergency Kit
Before leaving for your trip make sure that your vehicle has an emergency kit that includes the following:
- Pre-paid cell phone.
- Paper & pencil.
- Sleeping Bag.
Your goal when driving anywhere during the winter should be to be ready for anything, especially being trapped in snowy, winter conditions because, as important as it is to drive with Central Oregon Car Insurance, it’s also important to be prepared for driving in Central Oregon since the weather can change very quickly.
Plan A Route
Last of all, but most important, before driving anywhere during the winter in Central Oregon it’s important to make sure that you let other people know where you’re driving because, in case you get into an accident, are injured or your vehicle breaks down in Central Oregon, your friends, family members and relatives will be able to know exactly where you might be on the road to your destination.
