How to brake in the winter on slippery roads - with ABS and without ABS

How to brake in the winter on slippery roads - with ABS and without ABS

Winter and ice on the roads - this is the most dangerous time for drivers. Due to the lack of full traction wheels with the road surface, the car starts to behave inadequately at high speeds. If there is a need to brake sharply, the stopping distance increases, and the speed of the machine due to inertial force may increase dramatically. To avoid accidents, experts advise you to follow simple rules while driving and braking on an ice-covered road.


    First, you need to switch to a less aggressive driving style. Even a little snow, slush or icy conditions lead to a loss of one hundred percent grip. Braking distance increases and instantly stop will not work, even if you have studded winter tires.


    Secondly, you need to start braking in advance. A sharp press on the brakes - the reason for skidding. Braking is necessary with the help of short and not long pressure on the brake. The wheels should not be sharply blocked, and gradually reduce the speed of rotation.


    Thirdly, learn the combined method of stopping. Its essence lies in the fact that having a sufficiently large platform for braking, you need to advance to lower gears and gradually slow down. The most important thing is timely gear shifting, it is necessary to move to a lower gear only with a corresponding indicator on the speedometer, otherwise there is a chance to “knock down the engine”, that is, a sudden shift to a lower gear with increased thrust leads to complete loss of controllability. Do not forget to keep the distance between cars, and do not drive very fast if this is not necessary. If your car is equipped with anti-lock wheels - ABS, you should not fully rely on it. In some cases, the braking distance may be even longer. The essence of ABS is that the braking occurs intermittently, only the system itself does this with the help of sensors. Unfortunately, on a slippery road, sensors do not always read the information correctly. In order not to lose control, you need to sharply depress the brake pedal and then squeeze the clutch. The system in this case will start pulse braking, however the wheels will not be blocked and the stopping distance will be much shorter.

Because of the ice you need to be extremely careful, start to slow down in advance. You should not immediately gas when the green light comes on, because other motorists may not have time to stop in time, and pedestrians may slip on the ice.
