When you live on Long Island, snow is just something you have to deal with every winter. Not only do you have to shovel it, you also have to drive in it. Below are some tips that will help you drive safely on snowy or icy roads.

1. Driving at a fast speed increases your chances of spinning out. To prevent this, drive slowly and cautiously.

2. Have chains or snow tires put on your car.

3.Make sure that your car is in tip top shape. Have parts replaced or repaired, when necessary.

4.Bring your car to a local mechanic for an inspection. They can address problems that are not in plain sight.

5. Keep a safe distance between the car in front of you. It will give you more time to slow down or come to a complete stop.

6. Never drive with frosted or snow covered windows. After all, this could impede your visibility and view of the road.

7. Keep your eyes on the road at all times.
