September 17th, 2020 by

Winter has arrived in Minneapolis! As temperatures begin to drop and the snow begins to pile up, we find ourselves transitioned into winter mode. You have to take the extra time to allow yourself to get all your layers on in the morning. It gets dark earlier which means that you can get to bed earlier. Between comfort food and the best hot drinks in America, you could say you have adjusted well.

Has your driving adjusted to the change in seasons? Rudy Luther Toyota wants to make sure that you are safe and prepared when on the road. We have compiled a few friendly reminders to keep in mind while you’re on the roads this winter. If you find yourself not doing some of these, we hope you start!

Winter Driving Habits You Need To Adopt

Drive slower everywhere you go.

Accelerate and decelerate slowly.

Don’t apply extra gas when you are driving up hills.

Do not use cruise control when you are driving on slick surfaces.

Keep your gas tank at least half full to keep the gas line from freezing.

ALWAYS wear a seatbelt.

Know your brakes, and make sure they have been check out by our service department.

Make sure you keep up with local weather reports.

Make sure you have emergency supplies and provisions.

Stay at home if that’s an option. Driving in winter conditions is always risky! Be safe.

Whatever you decide be safe on the road out there! We want to make sure you are ready for whatever comes your way this winter. Be sure to visit our service department to ensure all is good under the hood.
