Icy Road Safety.com - Prepare for Weather's Most Underrated Hazard

Road Icing Safety Course Summary

Congratulations, you have completed the online road icing safety course!

Summary

  • 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.

Please share this course with your friends, family and co-workers. Together we can make a difference and save lives!
