Winter driving tips:
Auto wheel show shares that one important thing to remember when driving in winter is to maintain good visibility. Remove all snow and ice from vehicles before departure.
To clean from the top, remember to clean the roof, windshield, hood, trunk, taillights and mirrors. Once you're done, you can hit the road, but be sure to remember the following tips:
Drive slowly. The speed should conform to the weather conditions.
Always plan ahead and anticipate dangerous driving conditions, areas and streets.
Brake properly. Sometimes, lift your foot off the accelerator and let the car slow down naturally to prevent skidding. Also, brake ahead of time before entering the curve, not in the curve.
Be careful of other vehicles on the road. Keeping a safe distance from the vehicle in front of you gives you more reaction time.
Turn on lights and wipers when driving in snowy or poor visibility conditions.
Drive smoothly and avoid sudden braking and turning.
Turn on your lights early enough to allow other vehicles time to respond to your intentions.
Auto parts Trade Fair says that if your vehicle has an anti-lock brake system, be familiar with the system. Applying steady pressure on the brake pedal produces a pulsing sensation, which is normal.
If driving on dangerous thin ice, remember to stay calm and steer properly. To avoid skidding, do not slam on the brakes, accelerate, or swerve. Instead, try to release the brakes and turn the steering wheel to the slippery side. If you oversteer, you will slide to the other side, and try to slowly turn back in the opposite direction.
