Ford drivers love their cruise controls - and it’s no wonder why. Intuitive technologies keep travelers on the right track, detecting changes in traffic, road structure and more. Maintaining perfect speeds is a simple feat.
As winter continues to roll through New Westminster, however, that feat becomes impossible.
Key West Ford urges all drivers to avoid using their cruise controls this season. Though Ford vehicles boast the latest innovations - such as the Fusion’s brake-assist systems or the Taurus' radar sensors - travelers can easily find themselves slipping and sliding. Snow, sleet and ice make for dangerous companions, and cruise functions can’t properly adapt to them.
Learn to accelerate and decelerate as needed instead. Rely on steady pressure to maintain traction, and avoid sudden bursts of speed. This will help all vehicles to remain in their proper lanes (rather than skidding into ditches).
