Before we dive into anything else, we suggest you leave an increased stopping distance between you and the vehicle in front of you. Icy and wet roads are common, so sliding into another car or object is more probable when you slam on your brakes. On the same token, slowing down during inclement road conditions is always a smart idea. Even turning is difficult on a snow-covered road. Last, but not least, if you happen to find yourself stranded due to winter weather, having a full tank of gas, extra blankets, snacks, and a flashlight is useful. That way, you can keep you can stay comfortable until help arrives.
