21 Dec How To Drive In The Ice And Snow When You’re Not Used To It
In recent years, Texas has been experiencing more severe winter conditions, and if you live in an area that gets hit with snow and ice, then you might want to brush up on some driving skills. Here are a few ways you can drive safely when there’s snow and ice on the road.
If you have a led foot, you’ll want to make sure to ease up on the brakes. Slowly press down on them, rather than slamming suddenly. If you press too hard and too quickly on the brakes while the roads are slippery, then this could cause skidding.
If you do find yourself skidding, you’ll want to steer in the direction that you want your vehicle to go in, and, believe it or not, lightly press on the gas pedal. The brake is not the correct pedal to use while skidding, especially when skidding sideways, it would only make matters worse.
You’re going to have to drive under the speed limit, and take things slow with care. Make small movements, and proceed with caution. Drive like you are driving on slippery ice…well because…you are!
As the winter seasons bring more ice and snow each year, Tire and Wheel Master want you to stay safe on the road. You might not think that you will ever have to drive in these wintry conditions, but you should take caution just in case, and stop by to find a set of winter tires!
