Re: Winter Driving - My 1st Time in an Automatic

All I would add is be gentle with all the controls, no sudden braking, steering or acceleration.

Smoothness is the key. I've seen my neighbours slipping and sliding all over the place, whereas I've driven up and down the road with no problems.

Take your time, plan ahead and be gentle.

Most importantly though don't travel unless you have to.

Be safe.

People who think they know what they're doing are especially annoying to those of us who do.
