With today’s vehicles being far better equipped to keep their drivers and passengers safe, some folks have a tendency to pay less attention to the basics and rely on advanced technology such as traction control, anti-lock braking, collision avoidance systems, etc. to keep them safe, even in the most challenging weather conditions. But the cold, hard reality (pun intended) is that the most advanced systems on today’s vehicles don’t create or generate traction, they simply work to maximize the traction that is available. And it is the vehicle’s tires that determine how much traction is available for those systems to take advantage of.
So when it comes to winter weather, those of who can’t simply stay home and wait for better driving conditions should give serious consideration to installing winter tires on their vehicle or vehicles.
