When the snow and ice hits the road, it can become more difficult to control your car on the road. It can be difficult to drive in bad weather, which is why we’re here with some tips on handling the rough road.
Stay Back – When you’re driving in bad weather, try to increase your following distance. Since your brakes might react more slowly, you’ll want to leave more space between you and the person in front of you.
Slow Down – It’s amazing how much slowing down to the speed limit will help. It allows you to have more control over your car and lessens the chance of slipping on the road.
Hands On – Keep both hands on the wheel. Even if you’re usually a one-hand driver, having two hands on the wheel will give you more control when driving over ice.
One Lane – Try to stay in one lane as much as possible. Changing lanes unnecessarily could cause problems to you or other drivers if it’s a busy traffic time.
Headlights On – Even if it’s bright out, you’ll want to put your headlights on in snow or rain. It makes it easier for other cars to see you.
