Driving on Ice
Driving in winter weather conditions can be dangerous and stressful if you do not have much experience. Slippery roads, decreased visibility, and the hazard of hydroplaning can make even the shortest of commutes treacherous. Even with the help of ice crews who dispense salt on especially hazardous roads, driving in snow, sleet, or ice can be hazardous.

When you are driving in winter weather conditions, keep in the mind the following safety tips to help protect you and your family:
- Drive slow. When visibility is low and roads are slick, driving slow is your safest bet for avoiding collisions.
- Use brakes sparingly because excessive use may cause them to lock up and send your car careening off the road.
- Always drive with your lights on during dangerous weather
- If you lose control of your car, turn your steering wheel in the direction your car is moving. This will help to stabilize the car and enable you to regain control.
Even when following all of the safety tips above, accidents can still occur.
