If you live in one of these areas and see snow.. Slow down! After a certain speed on the snow, you just have no more control over the vehicle. Things may be fine and dandy while you’re going straight, but when a curve comes, things can go badly.

Ice – don’t drive at all. Unless you have chains or metal spikes in your tires, you probably won’t be able to safely navigate the roads.
