With the end of daylight saving time on Nov. 6 signalling the approach of winter, Bridgestone Americas (Bridgestone) is reminding drivers to exercise extra caution behind the wheel.
As the days become shorter, it’s a critical time to re-examine driving and vehicle safety. The hour shift in sunrise and sunset, coupled with colder temperatures, leads to changes in road conditions. It’s essential for drivers to stay alert and ensure their vehicles are prepared for winter driving.
“As temperatures drop, it’s important to make sure your vehicle is equipped to handle winter weather and that starts with installing the right set of winter tires,” said Justin Hayes, product manager, Bridgestone Americas. “Winter tires give drivers more control in winter driving conditions, which often rapidly change from cold and dry to ice and snow. This added control is essential as the days become shorter and more drivers are facing dark commutes with low visibility.”
