- Decrease your speed and leave yourself plenty of room to stop. Allow at least three times more space than usual between you and the car in front of you.
- Brake gently to avoid skidding. Ease off the brake if your wheels lock up.
- Turn on your headlights to increase your visibility.
- Keep your lights and windshield clean.
- Use low gears to keep traction, especially on hills.
- Don't use cruise control or overdrive.
- Be especially careful on bridges, overpasses and infrequently traveled roads, which will freeze first.
- Don't pass snow plows and sanding trucks. The road in front of them is likely worse than the road behind.
- Don't assume your vehicle can handle all conditions.
