Whether it’s rain, snow or ice, the best strategy for dealing with nasty road conditions is to stay home. Unfortunately, it’s not always possible to stay off rainy, icy, or snowy roads so if you do have to drive, slow down, heighten your focus and adopt a defensive driving strategy.
Here is some info that may help you stay safe on the road in bad weather:
Give yourself a space cushion — room in front of you, behind you and next to you. This allows you more time to react if the car in front of you stops suddenly or if an accident occurs around you. If you are on a multiple lane highway, try to keep a lane between your car and the cars next to you.
Remember, if you’ve got a choice, opt for the safer one and stay home.
