Know Your Brakes – The best way to stop is to keep your heel on the floor and apply steady pressure with the ball of your foot, whether or not you have anti-lock brakes.
Accelerate and Decelerate Slowly – The best way to avoid skidding and keep traction is to start moving more slowly and allowing more time and distance for slowing.
Don’t Stop If It Can Be Avoided – If you can slow down without stopping to allow traffic lights to change, your vehicle will not lose its inertia.
Don’t Power Up Hills – This will help to avoid spinning your tires and maintain better control of your vehicle.
Avoid Stopping When Going Up A Hill – It’s difficult to get your vehicle moving forward again if you come to a complete stop on a hill.
Increase Your Follow Distance – Maintain a longer distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Try to maintain a minimum distance of 10 seconds.
Drive Slowly – Everything takes longer in snowstorms, both starting and stopping. Also, the visibility is reduced greatly. Account for this with your driving.
Remain Home If At All Possible!
