Whether it's snow, ice, or heavy rain, winter can present a host of challenges to even the most experienced driver. Slick roads require a different, more cautious approach, and while there's no replacement for experience, here are a few techniques that can be used when driving on slippery roads:

· Anticipate the situation. Many accidents could be prevented if the driver had just one additional second to react. When weather conditions are challenging, timing becomes even more critical. Look as far down the road as possible, and assess situations or circumstances that could cause potential problems. By noting road conditions, such as a patch of ice or a large puddle 10 cars ahead, and what actions drivers ahead of you are taking, you can adjust your driving in advance and anticipate problems before it's too late to react.

· Leave extra distance between the vehicle in front of you. Just as you would while driving a heavier vehicle or while towing, leave extra distance between the vehicle in front of you when driving in winter road conditions. This extra distance will allow more time to react to potential hazards and will help compensate for reduced vehicle handling.

· Do one thing at a time. A slippery road often means a loss of traction, which becomes even more challenging if you try to do too many things at once, such as accelerating or braking while turning. You can be more effective if you perform each driving maneuver separately. For example, when approaching a curve in the road, brake in the straight line prior to the curve. (Braking while in a turn, whether in rain, snow, ice, or even on a dry road at higher speeds, can upset the balance and stability of your vehicle, resulting in unwanted handling characteristics or even a loss of control.) Then, take your foot off the brake and steer through the curve. Finally, accelerate once you begin to straighten the steering wheel to exit the corner.
