Winter Driving Tips The important thing to remember in winter driving is to maintain high visibility.

Remove all snow and ice from the vehicle before departure. To clean up from the top, remember to clean the roof, windshield, hood, trunk, taillights and mirrors.

Once this cleanup is done, you can go on the road, but be sure to keep the following tips in mind: Slow drive.

The speed should be in accordance with the weather conditions.

Be sure to plan ahead and anticipate dangerous driving conditions, areas and streets. Brake timely. Sometimes, lift the foot away from the accelerator, so that the speed naturally down, you can prevent skidding.

At the same time, brake before entering the corners, rather than braking in the corners. Be careful of other vehicles on the road.

Keeping a safe distance from the front of the vehicle will allow you more time to react.

When driving in snowy or low visibility, turn on the headlights and wiper.

Drive smoothly, avoiding sudden braking and turning.

Turn on the signal early to allow enough time for other vehicles to respond to your intentions. If the vehicle has anti-lock braking system, be familiar with the system.

 

Applying a steady pressure on the brake pedal produces a pulse sensation, which is normal. If you are driving on a dangerous thin ice, remember to stay calm and control properly. To avoid skidding, do not slam the brakes, accelerate or suddenly turn. Instead, try to loosen the brakes and turn the steering wheel to the side of the skid. If you turn too much, you slip to the other side and try to move slowly back to the opposite direction.
