Are you ready for snowy, icy roads? Hone your winter driving skills

It’s inevitable – the first substantial storm of the year sees vehicles slipping and sliding all over the road with fender benders galore and a few cars off in snowbanks. By the end of the winter, we New Englanders have some pretty good driving skills, but it’s almost as though we all need to re-learn every year.
Here’s a fun way to brush up on your seasonal skills and maybe even learn something new: visit Michelin’s fun and informative Winter Driving Academy. It includes videos, games, quizzes, and tips on preparing your car for winter; vehicle handling basics, such as turning and braking; tips on driving in ice, slush, snow, and black ice; and information about winter tires.
Whether you need tires or not, there’s a lot of other good information on the site about tire maintenance, tire storage, and driving and safety tips.
