Slow Down! Icy Roads!

12/2/2021 (Permalink)

With the recent big ice storms, most will avoid the roads as much as they can. But even those currently working from home will eventually have to go out for one reason or another. And if the roads are not salted yet, there could be patches of ice anywhere. Or even entire roads covered in ice. No matter how good the traction on your car is, there’s always a chance to spin out on the ice and crash. To avoid such a disastrous problem, there are a number of simple things you can do while driving to help your car stay on track and the people inside safe and sound. These tips from Ice Road Safety will help you get to all your destinations safely;

  • Drive slower, more speed means less control
  • Only go out when absolutely necessary
  • Go easy on the breaks, your car may slide forward on the ice
  • Turn into a slide, the wheels should be going the same direction as the back of your car
  • Don’t stop for other stranded vehicles, professionals will be on their way to help
  • Avoid hills and other more dangerous roads

Driving has quickly become an integral part of our day-to-day lives. And our cars have gotten safer just as quickly. But even still, so much safe driving is controlled by the driver. So when the weather turns back, make sure you know how to protect yourself, and all your passengers.
