|Topic: An Important Message|
local police departments and your state Highway Patrol would like you to
know a few things about driving your SUV or 4wd Pick-up, particularly in
the wintertime. While we will cover these safety topics, and many more,
later in this training course, a few of them are repeating here.
4wd drive vehicles give the driver a false sense of security about driving on roadways in ice, snow, or rain. Once your tires break away from the pavement (skidding), 4wd has absolutely no value to you. When you need to hit the brakes in ice, snow, or rain, skidding is the inevitable result.
Excessive speed is the culprit! When driving in winter conditions, you need to drive slowly to keep your vehicle under control. Driving at 40-70 miles per hour in the snow is just totally insane. Accidents and fatalities resulting from SUV owners driving 60 miles an hour on snow or ice have become a common occurrence. Give your family and other drivers on the road a break. Always drive cautiously when winter conditions are present.
