How to Drive on Icy Roads

Slick streets? Take precautions! These tips can help improve your safety.

Icy roads are one of winter’s biggest dangers: Slippery conditions contributed to more than 150,000 crashes from 2002–2012, according to the U.S. Federal Highway Administration. Fortunately, you can take simple steps to keep you safer during winter driving.

Change Your Tires

If cold, icy winters are common in your area, swap your regular tires for snow tires to gain more control. Snow tires have more contact edges than normal tires, allowing them to grip the road better. Also, the rubber on snow tires stays pliable in cold temperatures, which helps provide better traction.

Drive Cautiously

Know the Roads

To stay ahead of icy roads, know when and where ice forms. Any winter precipitation can cause ice, as can sudden temperature changes. “Black ice” (a thin, almost invisible coat) is most likely to form on intersections, bridges, overpasses, underpasses and ramps. For more about dealing with black ice, follow this advice from MetLife Auto & Home.

Be Aware of Other Drivers

Driving slowly offers some protection from other drivers, but be sure to keep an eye on the cars ahead of and behind you. Brake lights ahead mean you should slow down! If a driver follows closely behind your vehicle, keeping a slow pace forces them to do the same.
