Winter Driving Safety—What to Do If You Start to Skid

Winter Driving Safety

Wintertime driving can lead to dangerous situations when the temperature drops and the roads are slick with snow or ice.

If you start to skid, steer in the direction that the vehicle is sliding until you can feel your vehicle regain traction. Then, slowly straighten your wheels and keep rolling.

To prevent an unnecessary skid, slip or accident, consider the following safe driving techniques:

  • Drive at reduced speeds.
  • Avoid over accelerating your vehicle in deep snow.
  • Plan ahead for lane changes.
  • Slow down ahead of turns and curves.
  • Anticipate stops near intersections.

Please contact us if you have any questions or would like more information on this important safety topic.
