Tips for Driving in the Snow

If you live in regions that experience severe weather, traveling can be both frightening and dangerous during winter storms. Slippery roads, a lack of visibility, and decreased control over your vehicle cause more than 2,000 road deaths every winter according to the AAA Foundation of Traffic Safety. Although it is best to stay home and avoid driving during severe weather, if you happen to find yourself in a risky situation, follow these four tips when traveling in snowy and icy conditions:

Increase Following Distance

If you find yourself on a snowy road, increase the following distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you by five to six seconds. This increased space between vehicles will provide longer distance if you need to stop short.

Do Not Stop If You Can Avoid It

Instead of hitting the brakes in situations you know you will need to come to a complete stop, such as a traffic light, try to slow down enough to keep rolling until the light changes.

Deal with Slippery Spots

When driving in snowy and icy conditions, it is more than likely that you will come across a slick spot. If this occurs, do not panic and do not slam on the brakes. When sliding out of control, turn the steering wheel in the direction that the rear of the car is sliding to quickly regain traction.

If there is salt on the roads, this should help keep the slippery spots to a minimum. Road salt is great for safer driving, but not great for the exterior of your vehicle. Over time, road salt can cause an extensive damage to vehicles since it is extremely corrosive. To protect your vehicle from the damage of road salt, try using Wipe New® Original. This unique formula restores your vehicle’s trim in one quick, easy application and protects your vehicle from sun exposure, road salt, and other harsh elements.

Use Your Brake System

Lastly, get to know your brakes. Vehicles are equipped with an anti-lock brake system (ABS) to optimize the car’s breaking in extreme conditions. If you are skidding and cannot recover, push down the brake pedal hard, yet controlled, and the ABS system will allow you to keep the brake pedal fully engaged while steering around obstacles.
