How to drive when the road is icy? Novice drivers must see driving skills

In recent days, heavy snow has fallen in the north and many cities in the South have not been spared. Especially for novice drivers, I dare not drive on the road in such weather. So how to drive when the road is icy? Share the driving skills when the road is icy.

First, don't drive too fast

Speed control is the key to driving on ice. When driving on ice and snow road, the braking distance is significantly longer than that on dry road. If it drives to 100km / h on the ice and snow road, the braking distance required for it to slow down to rest is more than 150m. So when you drive at this speed, it's too late to see obstacles in the distance, and the emergency brake is likely to cause a greater risk of tail flick. At the same time, many ordinary people do not change into winter tires in winter, so we need to pay more attention to driving on ice and snow roads, not too fast and keep enough distance from the car in front.

Second, focus on the unexpected

As the icy road is quite smooth, you should always pay attention and keep your concentration during driving. Predict the road conditions ahead so as to take measures in time and prevent accidents due to inaccurate operation in the event.

Third, try to go straight

Many people like to swim in the river to show their driving skills. But when driving on the icy road, do not do such dangerous actions, because frequent steering, it is easy to have the situation of unstoppable or vehicle skidding. Therefore, drivers need to pay attention to driving smoothly, keep straight driving, do not easily change lanes and overtake frequently, and the distance from the car in front should be twice as usual.

Fourth, precautions for uphill and turning

When driving on the road, it is inevitable to encounter ramps and curves, especially the ramps of some overpasses, which are both ramps and curves. If there is road ice here, it will be more prone to accidents than other sections. Slow down in advance when turning, keep the speed low and cross the corner, and do not overtake or change the lane at the corner. Try to keep the low gear and avoid shifting when going uphill, avoid sliding in neutral when going downhill, pay attention not to step on the brake, and use the reduced gear to help reduce the speed.

Fifth, light control

If the visibility is not good, or when the snow is falling, turn on the front and rear fog lights so that others can find you in time. But if the visibility is better, or if it is sunny after snow, turn off the fog lights, so as not to stimulate the driver's eyes before and after the vehicle to cause an accident.

Sixth, pay attention to pedestrians and non motor vehicles at all times

When crossing and turning, pay close attention to the pedestrians around, especially those who ride bicycles and electric vehicles. Their balance ability and control force on the ice and snow road are worse than that on the four-wheel car, so in many cases, the accident is likely to be that the pedestrian or two wheel car can't control and collide with the motor car, but as long as the accident happens, no matter who is responsible, it will be very troublesome, especially the pedestrian and the electric vehicle Non motor vehicle and motor vehicle start accident. So try to let pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists go first. Snowy days in winter are the period with the highest incidence of accidents. While driving, we must improve our safety awareness and make relevant preparations. In this article, I specially remind the southern riders that if they drive to the north in winter, they should pay more attention to prevent accidents due to lack of experience in bad weather.
