Drive to conditions
In the winter, even if you are not exceeding the speed limit you could be driving too fast. It’s up to you to adjust your speed to the conditions.
When there’s ice and snow, take it slow.
Increase braking distance
In the city, leave four seconds between you and the vehicle ahead. On the highway, leave six seconds. In the winter you may need to leave more room to stop because of snow, wind and ice.
Stay in Control
Avoid using cruise control when roads are icy because your vehicle can accelerate when it loses traction.
