Making Safe Corrections on Icy Roads Can Save Your Life

At Bald Hill Kia we try to educate our customers on safe driving practices. In the winter months this means taking precautions on icy roads. Knowing how to prevent or escape a slide can prevent tragedy.

Safe driving on icy roads begins with lowering speed. Shifting into a lower gear is also beneficial. Even when taking these steps you may still begin to slide or skid. The most important rule is to never press the brakes while sliding. Instead, use a tethering or light tapping motion on the brakes as you steer the car in the direction of the skid. In the worst case scenario you should try to guide the car safely off the road where it can be stopped.

We invite you to visit our dealership in Warwick to learn more about driving in icy weather. We will also be happy to schedule a test drive for you when you call or visit.
