Tips for Safe Driving in the Snow

  • Accelerate and decelerate slowly. Applying the gas slowly is the best way to regain traction and avoid skids. 
  • Leave 8-10 seconds between your car and the next as your following distance. 
  • Know your brakes. Apply firm, steady pressure on the brake pedal.
  • Don’t stop (if possible)/ If you can slow down enough to keep rolling until a traffic light changes, do it.
  • Don’t power up hills (or your wheels will just spin). Get a little inertia going before you reach the hill and let it carry you up. As the top, reduce speed and go as slowly as possible.
  • Don’t stop midway up a hill.
  • Stay home if needed. If it is unsafe to get to class, contact your professors as soon as possible.
