Driving in Winter Weather
Winter weather can be unpredictable at times, which means that driving slow and staying in control can help you stay safe on the roads.
The Chatham-Kent Police would like to offer the following safety tips while driving:
– Slow Down – most winter collisions happen because drivers are going too fast for the road conditions.
– Don’t use cruise control on wet, snowy or icy pavement – it reduces your reaction time and vehicle control
– Steer Gently – hard braking or quick acceleration may cause you to skid (if you do skid – steer in the direction you want to go)
– Give Space – it takes longer to stop on slippery roads, so give yourself extra space between other vehicles.
