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.
