Winter Storm Driving – AAA’s Tips on How to Go on Ice and Snow

With a massive winter storm crossing the United States, it is time to revisit safe winter driving techniques. The folks at AAA (the largest automotive association with over 50 million members) published a nice brochure to highlight what you need to know and be able to do when driving on ice and snow.

The pamphlet is broken down into the following categories:
* Preparing the vehicle for winter – including checking the electrical system, brakes, tires, exhaust, cooling system, wipers, and preparing a winter driving kit.
* Preparing the driver for winter – including selecting the right clothing and choosing the correct seat position.
* Winter driving techniques – including getting started, following other vehicles, steering, braking, and how to handle a skid.

Check out the brochure below.
