These 5 Winter Driving Tips Could Save Your Life

When the streets are covered in black ice and snow, and when rain and fog are making it hard to see, even the most confident drivers can get seriously hurt. Here are some ways to help you defend yourself against danger in winter and save the lives of you and your passengers.

Road Type Considerations

One way to do this is to pay attention to different types of roads. Bridges, overpasses, intersections, and hills are places where ice forms more quickly. There may be buildups of snow close to the sides of roads, so be aware of that as well.

Slippery Roads

Another way to stay safe is to slow down. Icy and snowy roads make it hard for your tires to grip the pavement. This makes it easier for your car to lose control. To give other drivers and yourself time to respond to danger, you should slow down. This will also help prevent accidents. Also, slow down when you are coming up to any of the types of roads listed above.

Also, make sure your headlights and windshield wipers are on. Headlights make it easier for you to see other vehicles and they allow the other cars to see you as well. Visibility is extremely important. Similarly, your windshield wipers will help you to see your surroundings.

Car Distance

Next, It is always best to allow lots of room between your vehicle and others, but this is especially important in the rain, and even more so in snow and ice. To stop on ice and snow, it takes between four and ten times more distance than it does on dry asphalt. Tire chains help with this a lot. Make sure they fit perfectly.

Preparation

Lastly, make sure you are prepared for anything. Have an emergency kit, water, non-perishable food, and extra warm clothes in your car, and make sure you have emergency phone numbers of people you can call if you need help.

Follow these tips and your winter driving will be as safe as possible! Happy safe driving!

Student Comments


"GOOD EASY TO READ MATERIAL"
Casey V. - Los Angeles, California


"This was an easy process in getting started in traffic school. I like the online option because I have kids and work up to 12 hours a day, even on weekends sometimes. I only suggest that if a question on the test is not answered that the system informs you before completing. I didn't scroll down far enough to see the last question before hitting submit therefore it was marked wrong. Thank you."

"Piece of cake. Thanks!"

"awesome course "
Adam W. - Santa Barbara, California


"I found the course material covered the DMV rules & regulations clearly. It reiterated the penalties of "distracted driving" which will help me improve my driving because it is one of my weaknesses. "
Lucy R. - Los Angeles, California


"I noticed some spelling errors, and there should be more graphics to make the course more interesting. Otherwise, it was a good learning experience."
