Have your car prepared for winter (“winterize” your vehicle) by skilled automotive technicians
Drive more slowly than you normally would
Pull over when visibility is too poor to drive
Check for ice on your vehicle’s windows and wiper blades; ice in those spots means there will likely be ice on the road.
Maintain a safe distance from the car in front of you.
Don’t turn or brake abruptly.
Remember that roads become more slippery as temperatures rise and ice begins to melt.
