When it comes to winter driving, the best way to maintain control of your vehicle is to control your speed. Arrive safely at your destination by driving to road and weather conditions.
Even with all-wheel drive and winter tires, your vehicle doesn’t handle the same in winter as in summer. It is not possible to start moving, swerve or stop as quickly and easily. Make up the difference by giving yourself extra travel time.
The best drivers know that everything changes with winter driving conditions. When months have the letter “R”, focus on slowing down and driving to the conditions.
