Winter Driving Tips
Go easy on the accelerator
Leave room to make decisions
Recovering from a skid
Keep both hands on the wheel
Keep looking at where you want the car to go to orientate yourself. Your hand-eye coordination is very powerful in helping you get back to going straight.
Steering into it or hold straight
If you feel a wobble ease off the accelerator and keep the wheel straight, if you find yourself in a more serious slide, steer into the skid (the same way as the back of the car is going).
Your car’s ABS is there to help you
Your car almost certainly has ABS, which is there to enable you to keep steering while braking, so don’t stomp on the brake, but you don’t need to release off it either, just keep steady pressure.
Take an advanced driving course
Use your lights properly
Dry your shoes
