On their website, Warehouse Tire points out that one’s tires are important in every defensive technique. One should make sure that they have good tread on their tires at all times, especially in the winter. If they do not have good tread, they should have them replaced with new tires like the ones at the tire store, Warehouse Tire.
• Be Aware. There are a large number of successful defensive driving techniques to help keep one safe during the winter months. Being alert while driving is the important defensive driving technique and is connected with all of the others. This means being fully aware of what is going on around you. One can be a safe driver, but one has to watch for the other guy hitting an icy patch and spinning out of control or sliding through a four way stop. That is why one must allow a safe distance between one’s car and the one ahead. If the car ahead spins out, you will have enough time to react and avoid the same situation.
• Slow Down. Most spin outs can be avoided by just slowing down. Even 4-wheel drive vehicles can spin out on ice and Michigan is notorious for patches of black ice that cannot be seen until one starts to fishtail. Some discourteous drivers who are not well versed in defensive winter driving techniques will follow too closely trying to get you to speed up. Let them pass. One may find them spun out up ahead. Driving too fast on icy or snow covered roads is the most common reason for accidents in the winter.
• No Sudden Moves. Keeping calm while driving is the key to avoid an accident in the winter. If one’s car starts to skid, one should avoid jerking the wheel in response. This sudden movement may cause the car to spin out. One should calmly and smoothly steer in the direction of the skid until the car straightens out. DO NOT SLAM ON THE BRAKES! One should take their foot off the gas and pump the breaks to slow down. Slamming on the breaks will lock up the wheels, unless one has anti-lock brakes. One should always remember that if the front wheels are locked up, one cannot steer the vehicle. This is a common mistake for novices.
If one follows these simple driving techniques, one may be able to avoid an accident. Watching out for the other guy who does not know these safe driving techniques is very important. BE AWARE.
