Here we are at the winter solstice, December 21, 2016. It's the shortest day of the year. We are commuting in the dark or driving when the sun is low -- at dawn in the morning or dusk in the evening -- making visibility difficult. Couple this with fog, mist, ice and snow and driving becomes a real challenge. Here are ten tips or reminders that will help you see better and stay safe.
- Check your head lights. Are they both working? Are they aimed correctly?
- Check the condition of the headlamps. They should be sparkling clear. When a car gets older, the plastic can turn yellow and dramatically cut down on the power of the headlights. The plastic actually can be restored. Check out this video.
