It looks like Winter is wanting to stick around a little bit longer. Even though the roads are clear for now, it may be a good time to review driving in icy conditions.
The most important thing to remember is not to drive fast. It may seem frustrating to be driving ten miles an hour at times, but it is better to be safe than sorry. It is also important to keep plenty of distance between cars as well as brake during straightaways and not while taking a corner if at all possible. And remember, slow and steady. When taking turns, make them slow the same as braking and accelerating.
Traction is the key to driving in snow and ice. If the tires on your car do not have deep thread, be very careful if driving in these conditions. Make sure to have your headlights on so other cars can see you – please remember to do this when it is raining out as well. If your car’s lights come on automatically, you may not think about having to turn them on.
