"One of the most important winter driving tips is to keep good visibility. The responsibility of looking out for others falls even more on the driver during the winter. Pedestrians are bundled up, and some times are hunched over so they can't see the traffic. "On coming cars can go into skids and may slide in front of you. Automobiles approaching on side streets may skid on ice near stop signs and not be able to stop. You must also be alert for children on sleds or playing in the snow. "Make sure of good vision from the car before moving. Windows should be clear of frost and fog. Never start out with frost-cov- «Nd window! thinking that the defroster will clear them In Jutt a few mlmrtet. Those few minutes could be long wMMfh to get Involved in a (raffle mleMp, "Those (hit have tinted windows should t» particularly alert during periods of poor visibility shuoh M tog, blowing MOW or "tin as ttw tinted windshields are Just a* effective it cutting out light during periods of reduced visibility as on bright tunay day a. "In addition to keeping windows clear and staying alert, drivers should help tne other drivers to see them, When visibility Is reduced, turn on the low beam headlights. Do not use parking lights because they are designated by Iowa law to be used only by parked vehicles. Parking lights don't help the other driver anyway, as tests show that the car will be visible before the lights can be seen." Additional winter driving tips Include 1) Always have a window vent open a little to bring In fresh air. This reduces the chance of carbon monoxide as- physlatlon and will alsohelpkeep the windshield clear, 2) Do not become over-confident when using snowtlres or tire chains. While they may provide added traction for starts, uo not trust them to make a car anymore stable than regular tires at tilgh speeds. 3) Keep testing the road conditions. In Iowa wet roads can turn Icy In a matter of a few miles or minutes. 4) Be alert for patches of Ice. A common danger point Is near a stop sign where slow- moving traffic hasn't broken up the Ice and snow. Also be alert for frost and Ice on overpasses, bridges and any shaded areas. 5) Take frequent driving breaks as winter driving is more tiring, and drivers need to be particularly alert. Stop more often or trade off driving more frequently. 6) If you go Into a skid, try to maintain a constant speed and turn In the direction you are sliding. Do not use the brakes!
