      Driving Tips

      With temperatures and moisture dropping across the state, drivers need to, once again, be cautious.

      A few driving tips to remember:

      • To avoid skids, brake carefully and gently "squeeze" brakes in slow, steady strokes.
      • Allow wheels to keep rolling.

      If your rear wheels do start to skid:

      • Turn the steering wheel in the direction you want the front wheels to go.
      • Do not slam on the brake pedal, braking hard will make the skid worse

      If the front wheels start to skid:

      • Take foot off gas, shift to neutral
      • Don't try to steer immediately
      • As wheels skid sideways, they will slow the vehilce and traction will return. As it does, steer in the direction you want to go.
