05-p-snow2

 

Driving in a snowy landscape on a slippery road while it is snowing in a rural area with traffic. The following aspects are stressed:

  • Lights on to see and be seen.
  • Drive off in second gear.
  • Drive slowly and in high gear.
  • Use engine braking as much as possible instead of pedal braking.
  • Brake gently and slow down in time, avoid strong deceleration’s.
  • Increase headway.
  • Anticipate far in advance.

Because the engine stalls more easily and the tires loose their grip sooner, vehicle control is more difficult. In addition, visibility is reduced.
