Florida (January 28, 2013)
Florida winters are known for heavy fog and rain that can drastically reduce visibility and impair a driver's ability to safely navigate the road. Driving in perfect weather can be hard enough - so when bad weather hits, it's important to take extra precautions. In addition to slowing down and increasing concentration and focus on the road ahead, State Farm encourages drivers to follow these simple tips for driving in bad weather:
State Farm also recommends drivers check at least twice a year to ensure the equipment is in working order. This means spare tires are properly inflated, first-aid supplies are current, all other supplies are fully stocked, and the cell phone charger is compatible with either a power outlet or an USB port in your car. Communication capability can be the number one lifeline in some roadside emergency cases.
