Winter Weather Reminders to Drive Safe

Today's forecast calls for snow showers for much of the day across Michigan.

The best way to stay out of the ditch is to drive slow on ice and snow.

Here are some tips from the State of Michigan to stay safe.




*It can take up to ten times longer to stop -Slow down and allow more room between vehicles.

*Watch for black ice-a very thin and nearly invisible layer of ice that makes the road look wet,bridges and overpasses are usually the first to freeze.

*Don't make any sudden moves- Accelerate and brake smoothly and gradually - no stomping on the brake or gas pedal.

*Steer into a skid-If your vehicle begins to skid, first take your foot off the accelerator. Then steer in the same direction the rear of your car is sliding.

*Work on your ABS -With an antilock braking system (ABS), when your car skids and you step on the brakes, you may feel a pulsing sensation. This is normal-do not let up on the brakes! ABS will prevent your wheels from locking during a skid, giving you greater steering control.

*Don't use cruise-Using cruise control on ice and snow can be dangerous. If your car skids, the cruise control will accelerate to maintain a constant speed -spinning your wheels even faster and increasing the chance you will lose control of your vehicle.




Be sure to keep blankets, a flashlight, food, and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
