Lesson P-Snow1

P-Snow1: Practice lesson slippery road :

ModusDuur (minuten)

Driving in a snowy landscape on a slippery road in a rural area with traffic. The following aspects are stressed:

  • Drive off in second gear
  • Drive slowly and in high gear
  • Use engine braking as much as possible instead of pedal braking
  • Brake gently and slow down in time, avoid strong decelerations
  • Increase headway
  • Anticipate far in advance

Because the engine stalls more easily and the tires loose their grip sooner, vehicle control is more difficult.
