It took us 2 hours to get from Union/Dublin to the f'n airport; so many wrecks... a Chevy HHR nailed a curb and folded the control arm in half; the wheel was laying back by the passenger's door. Good stuff.

First of all if your going up a hill momentum will help.....and don't stop on the hill like the dumb white found on road dead......oops I mean ford.........you want to try not to spin the tires but keep your momentum up if your going up if your going down use your gears untill you actually want to stop then put the vehicle in neutral that way your motor isn't trying to push your tires............and if you start sliding......pump breaks and try to steer away from all the cars that are in the way........hit a fence, pole, ditch anything but other cars

Yeah, once you atart sliding, the first rule is to get off the brakes. They do nothing but make you slide more. Stay off the brakes and steer away from anything important like stated above. When you are on your brakes, steering does not do anything.

One of the best things you can do for learning to drive in snow is find someplace, like a big church or school parking lot, on a snowy day and then just practice. Practice controlling slides and braking. Learn what 4WD does and doesn't do for you (it will get you going, but not a bit of good for braking). Learn what downshifting will do and not do. Sometimes downshifting at the wrong time can cause a slide on its own. And the best advice I can give is to give yourself plenty of time to get from point A to point B. Getting in a hurry when road conditions are bad is the downfall of most folks. Only go as fast as road conditions and your comfort level allow.
