Winter Driving Tips for Workforce Travelers

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011


Workforce travelers should go to a CheckINN Direct network hotel when the winter roads are badAre you a workforce traveler who welcomes winter? Today’s the day – 2011’s final season of the year gets under way later tonight (unless you’re on the East Coast, where winter officially begins at 12:30 a.m. ET Thursday).

Winter means the days are cold, the roads get slick and darkness comes early. All road warriors have their own tips and tricks to cope with driving iln wintery conditions. But in the interest of safety for all our valued workforce travel clients, CLC Lodging offers a few driving reminders this  season.

  • Knock the snow and ice off your car, truck or van before you start out.
  • Check that your windshield wipers aren’t frozen in place. If they are, let the car warm up and use the defroster to release them.
  • If a door is frozen shut, don’t force it open. You don’t want to damage any rubber weatherstripping on it. Instead, try another door, preferably one that has gotten some sun.
  • Be alert for icy patches or the hidden hazard of black ice.
  • Keep a warm coat, blanket, water and snacks in your car for unexpected road delays.
  • Carry sand or kitty litter to give you traction if you get stuck.
  • Keep an adaptable phone charger with your vehicle.
  • Let someone know your route in case unanticipated problems arise.

If conditions simply are too rough to be on the road, check in at a participating location in the CLC Lodging Hotel Network. Members have more than 10,000 hotels located along the routes where you travel most. You’ll find Best Western, Holiday Inn, Ramada, Super 8, Hilton Garden Inn and many familiar locations that are part of the network.
