How to drive a car in ice and snow conditions

Although ice is recommended to refuse the use of a car, many still have to test their driving skills on a slippery road.
Many drivers, unfortunately, do not understand the peculiarities of driving under such weather conditions. When the tires fall on ice, their grip on the road immediately drops 4-5 times, which in turn increases the braking distance of vehicles several times. And this means that a quick stop of a car is simply impossible. Such road conditions require drivers and pedestrians to pay more attention to their own safety measures and perfect compliance with the Road Traffic Rules.
In this regard, we want to give some recommendations on driving under ice conditions and snow rolled up:
On a slippery road, do not slow down dramatically, it's not only useless, but dangerous. Sharp braking leads to locking the wheels and increasing the braking distance, and more often than not, to the loss of controllability. When passing a dangerous area, try to keep the speed constant, use the accelerator pedal very carefully, smoothly and gently. Do not make sharp movements with a wheel.
When driving on bridges and overpasses, be especially careful. The ice layer on these areas of the road appears earlier than everywhere, and disappears later. In these areas, avoid sharp movements with a steering wheel, gas, and brakes.
On a slippery road it is better to avoid sharp maneuvers and overtaking. When driving on a climb, choose such a transmission so that you do not have to switch until the complete lifting is complete. During descent, do not press the clutch pedal, slowly brak when driving the car.
Do not forget about pedestrians. People crossing the road can slip and fall. So try not to scare the pedestrian with sharp audible and light signals. Get closer to pedestrian crossings and locations for children's facilities to minimize their speed.
Under snow conditions, it is necessary to move with the included dipped beam headlamps (or fog lamps), to adhere to high-speed mode, parking rules (in order not to interfere with the work of snow-removal equipment), with special care to move on bridges and overpasses, to refuse from risky maneuvers, which in unfavorable weather conditions can lead to emergency situations. If you need to stop, slow down the speed. And when stopping, turn on emergency light signaling.
In case of important and urgent needs driving you on the road, follow all the requirements of the rules of the road, be careful and careful, especially during the dark.
