There are several situations and conditions that may drive challenging. Before driving at night make sure the headlights, tail lights, signal lights and windows are clean they should be clean once a week or more often if dirty. Always keep your light on and if following vehicles or if there's on-coming vehicles make sure your headlights are on low beams so you don't blind drivers. When driving in or anticipating bad weather, here are some tips you could apply; when driving in rain, snow or fog increase the space between you and the vehicle in front of you to give yourself more time to react, to avoid a crash. If you get stuck in snow, turn on your hazards and make sure the tail pipe is not block by snow. Stay inside the vehicle if you're not at risk by being hit by other drivers, that way you will have shelter and you'll be easier to find.
