"In snowy weather, it is crucial to take precautions to ensure safety. Here are some measures to consider:

  1. Drive Slowly: Reduce your driving speed on snowy roads. Driving at a slower pace allows you to be more prepared for sudden stops or skids.

  2. Maintain a Safe Following Distance: Leave an ample following distance between your vehicle and the one in front of you. This provides more reaction time in case of sudden braking or sliding.

  3. Use Winter Tires: Winter tires perform better in low temperatures and on snowy surfaces. Check your vehicle's tires and switch to winter tires when necessary.

  4. Use Brakes Carefully: Avoid sudden braking. Using brakes in a gentle and controlled manner reduces the risk of skidding.

  5. Increase Visibility:** If visibility is reduced due to snowfall or freezing fog, keep your headlights on and use fog lights if necessary. Also, ensure that your vehicle's windows are clean.

  6. Do Not Neglect Vehicle Maintenance: Regularly maintain your vehicle, including brakes, tires, and oil levels. A well-maintained vehicle is safer in winter conditions.

  7. Be Cautious on Hills: The risk of skidding is higher on inclined roads or hills. Proceed slowly and with control in such areas.

  8. Carry Emergency Equipment: Keep a roadside emergency kit in your vehicle. This kit may include items such as tire chains, a tow rope, an ice scraper, and a blanket.

  9. Stay Informed about Weather Conditions: Check weather reports before traveling. Stay informed about the weather conditions along your route.

  10. Be Prepared for Emergencies: In case you get stranded, have essential items in your vehicle, such as a blanket, food, drinks, and an emergency kit.

By taking these precautions, you can enhance your driving safety in snowy conditions.
