Winter is upon us, and that means one thing: Snow. While many people dread driving in the snow, If you take the right precautions and stay safe, there is nothing to worry about. Today I will teach you how to drive safely during the winter. If the weather is too bad, however, it is best to stay home.

According to safemotorist.com, the three main tips to safe driving in the winter is to: Stay alert, slow down, and stay in control. I think this is the most simple way to drive safe in the snow. Stay slow, always stay alert, and make sure you are always in control of the vehicle.

Stay alert. This would include making sure you are off your phone, and make sure you are constantly looking around and staying alert. Also make sure your music and GPS is not distracting you. To stay in control drive slow and cautiously, take turns slow and carefully.

Spencer Gilder, a senior at Jenison High school, says “It is better to pump your breaks when you are sliding, vs braking continuously.” This is a good point, as if you lay on the brakes when on snow, you will just slide.
