Practise Accident Avoidance
Most people install winter tires to avoid taking the ditch or avoid getting stuck However, the greatest advantage is accident avoidance. The extra traction provided with winter tires works equally well for stopping and accelerating.
The most dangerous road conditions occur right around freezing temperature. Develop a sense of great delicacy in control applications. The recovery phase of a skid usually needs to be done more slowly on snow, since there’s less stored energy in the springs.
