Drive safely on winter roads. Winter car accidents have dropped greatly in the last decade, say road safety experts. One reason: folks are checking their computers before hitting the road to avoid poor conditions. Do this by logging onto Traffic.com or any other local news station site for the latest travel advisories.
Steer through a snowstorm with these rules from the National Safety Transportation Board– if you can’t see well through the flakes, stay calm. Safely navigate by 1) leaving at least three car lengths between you and the vehicle in front of you, and 2) drive at half the posted speed, and 3) avoid skids by slowing down on bridges and overpasses. These areas freeze sooner than other sections of the road because cold wind strikes them from both above and below.
