The snow falling in Alabama will likely mean an increase in the number of car wrecks on Alabama’s highways. Drivers should avoid taking to snow covered roadways if at all possible. Some simple safety tips for driving in icy and snowy conditions include:
• Decreasing your vehicle’s speed and leaving yourself ample distance between other cars for stopping.
• Use lower gears if possible, which can help increase traction.
• If your rear wheels begin to skid, take your foot off the accelerator and steer in the direction of the skid.
