Test Road Conditions
TEST ROAD CONDITIONS FREQUENTLY
When driving in challenging conditions, determine how much traction, or grip, is available. Make sure that no one is behind you and hit the brakes firmly until the wheels lock up. This will give you a clear indication of the grip available at that particular point in time. Over the course of a long trip, repeat this test to continually monitor grip.
Please pass on to the instructor our thanks for our teenage daughter's class last Sunday. She had an absolute blast and insures us that she now "gets it" and will be a safe winter driver.
