  • Don’t Speed

Do not speed on any open road, even if it is tempting. Many times it isn’t easy to figure out the slippery layer of ice until the vehicle starts rolling out of control or skidding. Winter is not the time to accelerate your dreams and wishes of overtaking or driving on empty roads.  

  • Blinkers 

Keep your car blinkers on while driving on empty roads to let the car behind you know of your presence. However, do not tail the vehicle if they skid and you crash into them. Instead, keep moving safely and watch the other cars’ blinkers. 

  • Emergency kit 

One of the most important blizzard safety tips is keeping an emergency kit in your car. Always keep an emergency kit ready in your car. It must include- gloves, flashlight, first-aid kit, enough water, non-perishable food, warm clothes and blankets, traction product such as Traction Magic, etc.

  • Hitting black ice 

If you do cross black ice, you must decelerate your car and reduce the speed of your vehicle by slowly removing your foot off the gas pedal. Do not apply the brake or accelerate as it may swing your car more. 

Instead, keep the vehicle moving in the direction you want to go and if you start slipping or losing your grip on the road, find a place such as a grassy patch or snow to go towards. 

  • Footwear

Even though you are traveling in the car, it is essential to wear appropriate footwear in an emergency. Wearing deep tread boots will keep your feet warm and help you walk on black ice too. You can further increase the grip by scuffing up your shoe soles before heading out in freezing weather conditions again.
