Road Icing Safety Course Summary
Congratulations, you have completed the online road icing safety course!
- Everyone is at risk from icy roads. Anyone who drives a vehicle where snow and ice occurs, even just once a year, is at risk for icy roads.
- No vehicle is immune. All vehicle types can lose control on icy roads, including SUVs, 4x4s, AWDs and trucks.
- Winter equipment doesn't make highway speeds safe.. Winter tires, ESC and antilock brakes won't prevent accidents if you are going too fast for the conditions.
- Take it slow! It's never safe to go highway speeds on even patchy ice/snow.
- Bridges are the first places to become icy.
- Watch weather conditions in the winter months. Any precipitation when temperatures are near or below freezing means watch out!
- Icy road accidents happen in multiples. Don't get out of your vehicle and stand/walk on an icy road.
- Consider postponing your trip or errand. The best way to stay safe is to not drive on icy roads at all, if possible - especially during freezing rain.
