Safety First! Tips for Driving in Ice and Snow

25 Jan 2016 / Community, Davis-Moore

Comments Off

Living in Kansas, we all know that our winter weather is notorious for extremes! Temperatures and weather conditions can, and do, change quickly – so it’s always a good idea to be prepared for snow, ice, and ever-changing wintery conditions. Allow plenty of time to get where you’re going, and follow our safety tips to make sure you get to your location safely!

Always leave plenty of space between you and the car in front of you!
A good general rule is a couple hundred feet (or at least allowing yourself 10 second to stop.) If you can’t stop your vehicle in that amount of time – you’re traveling too close! Even if you are confident in your driving abilities and the ability of your own car to stop on a dime – remember, the cars and drivers around you may not be. This may seem pretty basic, but when you’re in a hurry it’s typically the first rule to go out the window.

Do you have Anti-lock brakes? If so, used correctly ABS can offer you a significant advantage on slippery roads – however many people still don’t operate their ABS correctly! To operate ABS, apply steady pressure to the pedal during THE ENTIRE stop-DON’T PUMP ANTI-LOCK BRAKES! Your ABS system will automatically pump the brakes for you to keep the wheels from locking. Never manually pump ABS brakes yourself.

If you don’t have an ABS system, you should gently apply pumping pressure to your brakes when on slippery roads. Don’t apply standing pressure to your brakes as it can cause them to lock and may result in your car spinning out of control.

Do you know how to handle a skid? This is possibly the biggest problem for drivers on slick roads and the scariest when you start to veer out of control; however it is possible to steer OUT of a skid!

  • If you have FRONT WHEEL DRIVE: Once you feel your car start to skid, SLOWLY remove your foot from the accelerator until you feel your wheels begin to regain traction (don’t try to brake!) When you begin to feel your wheels grab the road again, turn the steering wheel in the direction you want the front wheels to go.
  • If you have REAR WHEEL DRIVE: You should also remove your foot from the gas pedal and slowly steer in the direction you want the car to go. If you are still not in control of the vehicle, you can counter steer until you are pointing in the right direction. Again, never apply pressure to the brakes!

Think that just because you drive an SUV or four wheel drive vehicle that you’re safe? Think again! While these kinds of vehicles are great in snow, they provide no advantage when driving on ice, so make sure to take care and put safety first no matter what!

No matter what precautions you take, unfortunately not everyone on the road may do the same, so always pay extra attention to the drivers around you. Buckle up, (and make sure everyone else in your car is, too!) and take your time. It’s more important to arrive at your destination safely and a few minutes late than to not make it at all.

Buckle up and Drive Safely, from your friends at Davis-Moore!
