5 Essential Tips to Stay Safe on Your Winter Commute

Updated: Sep 8, 2018

Max W. Head of Sales at GoParkr



It takes the average Toronto commuter 33 minutes to get to work everyday. With the snow finally coming in, it’s more important than ever to stay up to date on the latest safety measures of driving in poor weather conditions. Here are 5 essential tips to stay safe on the icy roads of Toronto this winter.




1. Buy winter tires




All season tires lose their grip below 7C and braking distances are significantly extended. Winter tires have more treads and deeper grooves for better traction on snow and ice**




2. Check the weather before going out




Knowledge is power, and it’s important to know what conditions you’re headed into so you can properly prepare prior to leaving your residence.




3. Slow down



This one sounds obvious, but we’re sure you’ve seen some drivers ignore this essential practice. Don’t let the size of your vehicle fool you into thinking it can drive faster than smaller cars.




4. Plot your parking ahead of time


You never want to drive more than you have to in poor weather conditions, so make sure you know exactly where you’re going before you leave. Check out our app to see how you can find convenient and easy parking in one click!






5. Bring a survival kit. Useful items include:

  • A shovel to dig yourself out of a ditch

  • A charged cell phone

  • Non-perishable foods

  • A Wool blanket

  • Starter cables


You never know when you’ll have to pull over because of a winter storm… or when you’ll encounter an AT-AT for that matter.



Safe driving from the GoParkr team!
