Slippery roads can be dangerous and need extra precautions.
Reduce speed and increase following distances.
Apply brakes sooner, and press down slowly and gradually.
Slow down before turns and curves.
Avoid puddles and icy patches whenever possible
Friction between tires and the road surface keeps you on course.
Friction propels you forward and allows steering.
If you lose friction, you lose control.
Skidding occurs when one or more wheels lose friction.
Do not slam on the brakes when driving on a slippery road.
Instead, ease your foot off the gas pedal.
Steer in the direction of the skid.
If the back of the vehicle skids to the right, then steer towards the right.
Hydroplaning occurs when water lifts the tires completely off the road surface.
Tire treads channel water out of the way.
The faster you travel, the more water needs to be channeled.
At high speeds, even small puddles can cause hydroplaning.
Do not brake, but ease off the gas pedal and slow down.
A "blow out" is a rapid loss of air from a tire.
A vehicle will pull to the side of the flat tire due to increased friction.
Do NOT hit the brakes... acceleration will give you more power and more control.
Keep a firm grip on the wheel.
Slow down and turn on the hazard flashers.
Stop at a safe, level area and fix the tire.
