Tips for driving on ice
Tips for driving on ice
Driving on ice is one of the main hazards to look out for when driving in winter. However, preparing adequately and driving appropriately will help you stay safe and protect all road users.
Being aware of the road conditions is vital to staying safe in your car, so always check the weather reports to get the latest information on the likelihood of ice, hail or snow. If the winter road conditions are particularly bad, it's important to limit your travel to essential journeys only, while sticking to main roads that have been gritted.
To help you navigate ice and hail, we've put together an in-depth guide to driving safely in on icy roads, so you can travel with confidence when the weather takes a turn for the worse.
Firstly, think about whether your journey is really necessary. Tyre grip is hugely reduced on icy roads, and braking distances are much longer.
Before you leave home, make sure you pack a charged mobile phone (and a charger cable), a bottle of water, a few snacks and a warm blanket. If you’re driving to meet someone, let them know your route and when you expect to arrive. Make sure the car’s windows and mirrors are completely clear before you set off. And in cars with selectable drive modes, select the best option for cold conditions.
Anticipation and smoothness are key for driving on icy roads. Look well ahead for potential hazards – including, of course, patches of ice – and keep your speed well down. Accelerate, brake, steer and change gear as smoothly as possible to reduce the risk of a skid. A higher gear may be more appropriate to aid grip on packed ice.
Braking distances can increase tenfold on ice compared with a dry road.
For this reason, you should leave up to 10 times the normal recommended gap between you and the car in front.
Remember that tyres grip less efficiently in cold conditions.
So even if the temperature is above zero and there’s no ice on the road, you should take extra care.
