RMA Publishes Winter Driving Tips
The Rubber Manufacturers Association, an ANSI member and accredited standards developer, offers stakeholders a list of tire-related tips for driving in dangerous winter conditions.

The association suggests that drivers use all-season or winter tires if they live in a snowy climate. Drivers should also take care to check tire pressure, because tire pressure drops when temperature does. If stuck in the snow, drivers should rock the vehicle gently back and forth. Spinning the tires too quickly may cause them to overheat and explode.

Learn more about these tips and others in the RMA news item.
