Roads are severely icy after the heavy snowfall and plummeting temperatures. We remind you to stay safe when driving in these conditions. Here are some tips on how to stay safe on the roads:
•The safest precaution to take would be to wait until the roads are declared safe for use.
•Driving at a much slower speed is very important because your car can easily spin or swerve on ice causing you to hit something or cause an accident.
•Driving on icy surface road requires some skill maneuvering talents. If you are not used to driving in such conditions it is better not to risk injury or even possible death by attempting to drive during these conditions.
•Seat belts! Everyone in the car should be wearing one. If you happen to slide or skid on the road and need to break quickly, seat belts will keep you from flying forward and injuring yourself.
•Check the weather conditions. This will prepare you for what type of road you will be driving on.
•Avoid braking suddenly and hard, as your car is very likely to spin out of control and pose a danger to others on the road too.
•Keep your speed slow so that braking is kept minimal at all times.
•Keep a firm hold of the steering wheel and steer the car in the direction you want it to follow even when the rear wheels are sliding and losing their grip.
