Driving in severe winter weather is always risky. Your vehicle may get stuck in heavy snow and slippery roads, which causes many difficulties and obstacles for the driver.
When driving in the snow, try to maintain a reasonable speed: not so fast that you lose control and not so slow that the vehicle can lose momentum when necessary, while coordinating the brakes, steering and accelerator.
The smoother the better. When starting to roll, it should be in 2nd gear to avoid high engine rpm.
After that, you should put the engine in a higher gear for more stable operation. The stopping distance will increase significantly on snowy and slippery roads, so you must adjust the distance from the vehicle in front accordingly.
Even if your car is equipped with ABS (anti-lock braking system), this system in too slippery road conditions can not give you the feeling of driving as usual. So don’t worry too much about them.
On steep roads, you should actively slow down before going downhill and try to maintain a low speed because once the road is slippery, it will be much easier to slow down.
When driving in the snow, turn on your headlights in low light (low beam) or anti-fog lights so other vehicles or pedestrians can easily see you (especially pedestrians). . . . the set).
But when the weather conditions are better, you should only turn on the anti-fog lights if necessary because they will blind other drivers.
When following another vehicle at night and taking advantage of the light of the vehicle in front, you tend to run close to that vehicle, so maintain a reasonable distance from the vehicle in front.

“That’s what happens when you take control of your driving on icy roads.”
“Slowing down helps. The tires on those cars aren’t made for that kind of weather.”
