Safe winter driving begins with your tires. There are a number of defensive driving techniques, and they are critical to driving safely in winter. But if yours are old and worn-out, the first thing you need to do is get new tires. Without them, you will not have good traction, and traction is the where safe winter driving begins.

You are now ready to start driving in the winter. The greatest challenge to winter driving is traction, keeping your vehicle on the road, and not crashing into anything.

Rule number one! Watch your speed! Slow down! Speed is magnified on snow or ice, and trouble comes much faster, things can turn bad quickly, and recovering on ice and snow is difficult. Driving an appropriate (or slower speed in ice and snow) speed gives you more of a chance to respond to any situation.

So,good traction, and slower speeds are the foundation of safe winter driving. However, there is also more more you can do. Give yourself room with the vehicle in front of you. Don't tail gate so you have more time to react. Also, make sure your windows, lights, and flashers are clear of snow and ice. You need to see all around you and other drivers need to see you.

A quick review of safe winter driving.

  • Good traction, get new tires.
  • Speed, Slow down!
