Winter Weather Driving Safety Tips

  • Know your vehicle and how it operates. Not all cars respond the same to slippery roads.
  • Knowing how to handle your vehicle and how it responds in various weather conditions is important.
  • Always maintain a good distance from vehicles in front of you.
  • The most important thing to remember when driving on slick roads is that you must travel, steer and brake more slowly than usual.
  • The distance needed to stop under slick conditions is much greater than you would need to brake under normal driving circumstances. Leave yourself plenty of room to stop.
  • Recognize Danger Zones:
    • Intersections -- Slow down before reaching an intersection. Scan all directions for cars and pedestrians.
    • Curves -- Reduce speed before entering a curve.
    • Bridges - Ice forms on bridges and freeways so reduce speed and use precaution.
  • Never brake while driving on ice. If you are approaching a patch of ice, brake during your approach. Applying pressure to your brakes while on ice will only throw you into a skid.
  • Finally, always buckle up and use extra caution when driving in slick or icy conditions.
