Change your Style
When it comes to winter driving, the most important safety system is sitting behind the steering wheel. Drivers definitely have the greatest influence when it comes to road safety.
Take an extra minute or two to clear snow and ice from all windows, lights, mirrors and roof. Let the heaters blow off the fog from the windows before you head out.
Take Your Time
Slow down and leave extra space between yourself and other vehicles. Put away the cell phone and snacks, and concentrate on the road.
Avoid sudden reactions to conditions, such as hard breaking or steering. (If you do skid, release your brakes and steer in the direction of the skid.) Give yourself plenty more breaking distance, just in case.
Plan your trip, decide where you might stop, and check the weather. News about road conditions and closures are available through many apps, websites and call-in numbers.
