Winter weather driving tips

Posted: Updated:

(01/08/14) - When the roads are icy, they are downright dangerous and deadly.

Just this week alone, at least three people were killed on slick Michigan roads.

Making the right choice in a split second could save your life.

Wednesday night, ABC12 got behind the wheel with a driving instructor.

Patrick Makidon, from Unique Driving Testers, gave us a crash course on the do's and dont's on the road.

Many of the tips are common sense, but even the most experienced Michigan driver can make the wrong move on slick roads.

"Coming to an intersection, when you have to slow down, that is the most dangerous time," Makidon said.

He suggests that drivers start slowing down within 100 feet of the light and if you start to slid don't panic.

Other common sense tips include, giving the driver in front of you extra room and slowing down when the roads become slippery.
