There are risks in winter travel, especially in the weather after rain and snow, the road will be extremely difficult to walk. Whether walking or driving, everyone will be extra careful for fear of accidents. In particular, drivers who drive should be more careful. After all, the road is not easy to drive, and accidents will occur if you are not careful. So what are the driving skills and precautions on ice and snow roads?
1. Check the vehicle in advance
Before we drive on the road in snowy days, we must check the wiper and whether it is normal in advance. If the wiper is frozen, it must be thawed in advance, so as not to be unusable at that time. In addition, we also need to clear the left and right side windows and the frost and snow on the rearview mirror in advance, so as not to affect our driving vision while driving.
2. Pay attention to your mentality.
It's right to be more careful when driving in snow, but don't be blindly nervous. Relax and slow down. When driving, pay attention to the rear-view mirror and pay attention to the vehicles on the left and right. In the event of an accident when driving in snow, keep a good attitude, master the driving direction and brake in time.
3. Don't drive too fast
Many young car owners drive for a sense of speed, but such behavior will cause accidents on icy and snowy roads. On the way, everyone should drive slowly and do not brake suddenly. Emergency braking can cause the tires to spin and lose control of the car, which is a dangerous behavior.
4. Predict the driving distance.
Due to the lack of clear vision in snowy weather, be sure to maintain a proper driving distance from the vehicle in front. This requires the driver to have a good pre-judgment, and judge it according to the icy conditions of the road and the amount of snow. This allows ample time and conditions to drive safely in the event of any situation with the vehicle in front
5. Do not overtake at will
When we usually drive on the road, we will inevitably encounter the situation that the car in front is driving very slowly. Some car owners choose to overtake due to their impatient temper. Overtaking on a flat road is no problem. But try not to overtake when we drive over ice and snow roads, because the ice and snow roads are slippery and the tire adhesion will be reduced. In this case, overtaking may collide with other vehicles if you are not careful, which is very dangerous.
