  2. Check your tires to make sure they are properly inflated and that they have plenty of tread.
  3. Drive, accelerate, and decelerate slowly to avoid skidding.
  4. Increase your following distance to five or six seconds to account for the possibility that you might slide when you go to slow down or stop.
