I see it almost every snow storm. Trucks, Jeeps, and SUVs fill the ditches. You still have to brake and accelerate carefully. Here are my tips for staying safe while driving in the snow.
- Do not brake or accelerate through corners. This is the foremost cause of accidents. Any sudden shift of the vehicles center of gravity coupled with a dramatic change in velocity will cause you to lose traction. This is how drifting works.
- Do not slam brakes or accelerator. This will cause you to loose traction quickly.
- Do not over correct. When you start to slide, the best chance you have of correcting is to make light steering corrections to keep your vehicle on the road.
