Drive slower than you normally would – it only takes a split second to lose control in wet or icy conditions. Avoid sudden braking or turning movements that could cause you to skid.
Accelerate smoothly and brake gently, and use your highest gear when travelling uphill and your lowest downhill.
For vehicles without anti-skid braking systems, pump the brake pedal in short rapid bursts rather than pressing long and hard to avoid skidding or sliding.
Drive at a safe travelling distance because it takes longer to stop on slippery roads. In winter, especially in poor weather, double the two-second rule and leave a safe distance between you and the car you’re following.
When travelling in fog, rain or snow, drive with your lights dipped for increased safety.
What about ice and snow?
