When you are looking to change up the vehicle that you are currently driving, you might not be sure if you should go with a new car or a used car. We think that you should try to split the difference and go with a Certified Pre-Owned Dodge, Ram, Chrysler, or Jeep from All Star Dodge Ram near Kirkwood. These vehicles are used, but they have passed rigorous screenings and meet high criteria, this puts them in like new condition! You will also find that a lot of the pre-owned cars, trucks, and SUVs offer amazing safety features. Today we want to share with you a myth about driving on icy roads, so that you can realize how important it is to be a safe driver with a safe vehicle.
Myth: Winter tires, 4WD, AWD, stability control, ABS and/or traction control allow for safe travel on icy roads at highway speeds.
Truth: The reality is that there is no technology, no tire nor any vehicle type that allows SAFE travel on any type of icy road at speeds greater than 45mph. Not traction control, electronic stability control, 4WD, AWD, antilock brakes or the most expensive brand-new snow tires. While all of those safety features will improve a vehicle’s handling and control to some degree, they do not eliminate the danger of losing control at highway speeds over 45mph in any type of road icing condition. The general driving public has been poorly informed about this critical point. “Most assume that icy road accidents are caused by either an inexperienced or reckless driver, or a vehicle with bad/worn tires. This certainly is a contributing factor to road ice accident numbers, implicitly suggesting that the product allows a the driver to continue normally in icy conditions without a reduction in speed.”-icryroadsafety.com
