The motor club AAA has advice for driving in this severe weather. Avoid unnecessary travel. No one can drive well on ice. Accelerate, decelerate and turn slowly. Everything takes longer in icy conditions, so be sure to leave space between you and the vehicle in front of you. Don’t stop—-if you can avoid it. Don’t power up hills. Applying extra gas on icy roads just starts your wheels spinning. And don’t use cruise control.
