Helpful Hints for Winter Driving

  1. Slow down. If you end up in a ditch it will add hours to your commute time.
  2. A 4-wheel-drive vehicle is no better on ice than any other vehicle, and may in fact, be more dangerous.
  3. When you can see the ice, it's probably too late.
  4. If you are on the highway and see ice ahead, DO NOT brake suddenly! Ease your foot off the gas instead. The person traveling behind you will appreciate this much more than sudden brake lights.
  5. Allow yourself some extra time to travel so you don't have to tailgate like a jerk.
  6. When you blow by someone who is traveling at a safe speed, you should realize they are probably wishing you into the ditch.
  7. Clear off more than a 2 inch section of your windshield so you can see. Please.
  8. When the weather warms up a little and the snow turns slushy it is imperative that you have mud flaps on your vehicle so that you don't blind the people behind you. But, you probably don't care about the rest of us anyway.
  9. If the weather is terrible and you don't have to go anywhere, STAY HOME.
