Winter Driving Tips

USE GRIP (TRACTION) EFFICIENTLY

Here is a top safety tip: when roads are slippery, use all of the grip (traction) available for one action at a time. Brake only in a straight line prior to the curve when the car is traveling straight. Taking your foot off of the brake before you steer into the curve allows you to use all of the available grip for steering. Accelerate only when you are able to straighten the steering wheel at the exit of the turn. This safety technique will allow you to be 100% effective at each maneuver – braking, steering and acceleration. This is especially important if you wish to drive safely in the snow!
