5 TIPS TO GET SAFE ON THE ROAD IN WINTER
Employees 28 Feb 2024 by Agnieszka Zakrzewska

Do you rent a car through Techvisie? Then these 5 tips are useful for you. In winter it is extra important to be well prepared on the road. Check your Techvisie car using the following tips. Is there something wrong? Please contact your account manager, because we think it is important that you travel safely.

TIP 1: MEASURE THE TIRE TREAD

One of the most important parts of your tires: the tire profile. In winter it can rain or freeze a lot and the roads are wet and/or slippery. It is very important that you check in advance whether there is enough profile on your tires.

You can easily check the tire profile with the coin method. As soon as the gold edge of the euro coin is no longer visible as in the photo, your tires are fine. But when the gold edge of the coin is visible, it is driven off to hit the road in cold temperatures and wet weather! Please contact your account manager immediately if you need new tires.

TIP 2: CHECK THE TIRE PRESSURE

It is important that you ensure that your tire pressure is correct before you hit the road, as under-inflation can increase your braking distance by up to 8 metres. So check whether you have the correct tire pressure. For most cars this would be between 2.3 and 2.6 bar. On the website vindbandenpomp.nl you will find reliable tire pumps in your area and you can see whether use is free or not. Need help? Contact your account manager.

TIP 3: CHECK THE LIGHTING

Make sure you are clearly visible to other road users. It is important that your lighting works properly during the day and in the evening, so that you have sufficient view of the road and other drivers on the road can see you clearly. Is your lighting broken? Please contact your account manager. 

TIP 4: ENSURE CLEAN CAR WINDOWS

It is important to thoroughly clean the car windows and lights before hitting the road. Your windshield and rear window, as well as the side mirrors and side windows, should not obstruct your view. Remove ice, condensation and snow. Has it snowed? Then also remove the snow on the lamps. The fines for driving with insufficient visibility vary between €240 and €380. Do you want an ice scraper from Techvisie? Contact your account manager.

TIP 5: KEEP ENOUGH DISTANCE

The cold and wet weather can cause a longer braking distance than you are normally used to. It is therefore important that you take this into account. It is wise to leave up to twice as much space as normal between yourself and the person in front. We think it is important that you travel safely on the road. Do you have doubts or would you like to discuss something? Please contact your account manager. We are happy to help you!
