1) Accelerate Slow and Decelerate Slowly

~Your destination is not going anywhere, take your time.

2) Don't Power Up Hills

~With the extra gas applied your wheels could start spinning on the ice and snow.

3) Know your brakes and car.

~I know my car does okay when it comes to snow and ice, so when I drive I know I need to slowly apply my brakes, just know your car.

4) Don't stop if you can avoid it.

~If you can slow down enough and SLOWLY keep rolling through the stop light.


~It's simple if the weather is bad, your car doesn't due well in winter weather and you have no where to so, JUST STAY HOME!
