WINTER WEATHER DRIVING

December 26, 2012

The Indiana Department of Transportation offers these hints when driving in winter weather:

•Accelerate gradually on ice or snow to avoid slipping and sliding.
•Drive slowly and carefully to avoid rear-end collisions and sliding on curves.
•Allow greater distance behind the car ahead. It takes more time to stop on snow and ice.
•Brake early, break slowly, never slam on the brakes. For cars with anti-lock brakes, press the pedal down firmly and hold it. For those cars without anti-lock brakes, gently pump the pedal.
•Avoid using cruise control.
•Avoid abrupt steering maneuvers.
•Maintain good visibility, stay alert and use your headlights so others can see you.
•Give snowplows room to operate; don’t tailgate or try to pass.
