Well my UK friends some driving advice from Canada.
1. Locked up wheels are no good. Only turning tires get traction. Spinning tires are useless.
2. Use a lower gear and keep your speed down and start slowing down earlier than you normally would
3. Give lots of space between vehicles.
4. Order some tire chains
5. Buy a shovel and a couple of bags of salt and throw them in the "Boot"
Don't drive if you don't have to.
The transit bus made me laugh. Whoever driving that is a moron. Speaking as a former transit driver who's driven buses in snow, there is no point being out in conditions like that. You have an uncontrollable 53 000lbs vehicle. Smartest thing to do is pull over and wait for plow/salt/sand truck. That driver only endangered himself, his passengers and all others near him.edit on 9-12-2010 by DEEZNUTZ because: (no reason given)
