1). Take your time. 2). Don't tailgate. 3). It takes more time to stop on ice, so start early and carefully. 4). Don't oversteer. If you're sliding, turn the wheel into the slide and you'll probably straighten up. You'll probably get back on track soon anyway. Fishtales are pretty rare. 5). Clean off as much snow as you can before you start driving. 6). If the pavement or road is shiny, it's probably icy. Watch out and be careful, even if you think it's dry, there's probably some ice somewhere. 7). If the cops/tow truck drivers/AAA tell you to stay off the road DO IT! Do you have some to add?
