Tips for Driving in Snow

Here are some basic tips for driving in snow conditions:

  • If you don't have to - don't.
  • Slow down. 
  • Increase the distance between your vehicle and the car in front of you by at least 3-4 car lengths.
  • Don't stomp your brakes. This will only cause your vehicle to skid. Ease to a gradual stop.
  • Use extra caution on bridges and overpasses.
  • If you should skid - steer into the skid and don't hit your brakes. Your vehicle will right itself and then you can brake.
  • If you must travel, toss a blanket and water and a snack into the back seat.
  • Make sure you have plenty of fuel.
