Car Driving on a Snowy road

 

Winter always tends to catch drivers by surprise, especially when roads are icy. To help keep you safe, Mid-Toronto Mitsubishi has prepared a few winter driving tips to help keep you collision free this season.

 

Winter Tires

 

Winter tires are a must in cold weather. Tires can harden with the temperatures drop leaving you with less traction between the road and your tires. Winter tires use special rubber compounds that stay flexible in the cold, giving you better grip and even improved braking in extreme conditions.

Don't "Pump" Your Breaks

 

If your vehicle is equipped with an anti-locking braking system (ABS) do not pump your brakes. You should apply constant pressure and let

the system do its work.

Be Prepared

 

Keep a snow scraper in a car, along with a small shovel, jumper cables for your battery and a flashlight. This way if there's a possible emergency, you'll be well equipped.

Lights On

 

Turn on your lights to increase your visibility.

 

Drive Slow &

Smoothly

 

Try to not make any abrupt turns or stops. Doing so can cause your vehicle to skid and lose control with its icy out. Driving too fast is the main cause for winter accidents. Be sure to drive slowly and to be extra careful on snow and ice-covered roads.

No Cruise Control

 

We wouldn't recommend using cruise control if conditions are snowy, icy or even just wet. This is because if your car hydroplanes, your car will try to accelerate and you may lose control of your vehicle.

Making Turns

 

Make sure to slowly reduce your speed before making a turn. Once you've rounded the corner it should be safe to accelerate again.

Don't Tailgate

 

Tailgating can be dangerous and even more so in the winter because stopping takes much longer on a snowy/icy road. Always be sure to leave enough room between your vehicle and the one in front of you

 

Learn How To

Control Skids

 

If you start to skid, you need to go against your natural instincts and turn into the skid while accelerating. Doing this transfers the weight of the vehicle from the front to the rear and will usually help gain the control of your vehicle.

! ! Pay Attention ! !

 

Let's face it, driving can be just plain difficult in the snow. Make sure to anticipate what your next move is going to be and give yourself lots of

room for turns and stopping.
