Ford drivers crave the open road. They want fast speeds and roaring engines - and cars like the signature Mustang or the Eco-boost enhanced Fusion deliver them both.
As the winter season rolls on, however, Key West Ford urges all drivers to slow down.
Cold weather breeds chaos. Once safe roads become slick, crusted with ice, sleet and dirty snow. Drivers must, therefore, learn to adapt to these conditions by decreasing their speeds. Avoid fast accelerations or abrupt stops whenever possible, reducing average ratios by up to fifteen miles per hour. Applying extra thrust causes nothing more than spinning wheels. Gently press the pedals instead to maintain traction.
Driving slowly is essential in the winter. Remember that it will impact work, errands more, however, so shift all schedules accordingly. Allow extra time to do everyday activities.
Key West Ford wants every driver to be safe this February. We urge everyone to slow down and be careful.
