In many areas of the US right now, icy road conditions prevail. If you do not have to be driving on the road, the best safety tip when dealing with icy conditions is to not drive until the roads have been properly treated for ice. If, however, you must travel on icy roads here are a few basic safety tips to keep in mind:
Make sure all passengers are wearing seat belts.
Keep plenty of distance between cars. You never know when you will hit an icy spot.
If you do skid, turn the wheels into the direction of the skid.
At any intersection stay alert even if you have the green light and keep a lookout for any vehicle that maybe skidding into the intersection.
