When a winter storm hits, it’s always best to stay off the roads. However, we realize that’s not always possible. So if you must venture out in less-than-ideal driving conditions this winter, please keep these tips in mind:
2. Don’t Pass Snow Plows. The drivers are focused on cleaning the roads to make them safer for you to drive — so the road in front of them is likely worse than what’s behind them. Plus they have limited visibility, so passing isn’t a safe idea.
3. Turn Into the Skid. If your rear tires begin to skid, let off the accelerator. If the tires skid left, turn the wheel left, and vice versa.
4. Use Your Headlights. This increases visibility to other drivers, so don’t be afraid to turn on your lights even if it’s daytime.
5. Remember: 4-Wheel Drive Doesn’t Mean You’re Invincible. Even all-terrain vehicles can encounter trouble on wintery roads. Always drive with caution!weather.com for providing some of these tips!
