Drivers are encouraged to slow down, and increase fol- lowing distance from three seconds to at least six seconds. The braking distance for road surfaces with rain, snow and ice can be from three to nine times greater than stopping distances on dry, clear roads Icy con- ditions may also obscure lane markings and traffic signs. Motorists should be aware that all types of vehicles, even those with four-wheel, front- wheel and all-wheel drive, can encounter trouble on snowy and icy roads. "No g,er.what type of vehicle you 'e r driving, extra. caution is the rule of thumb in bad weather," Holcomb said. Sometimes motorists who encounter a slippery road sur- face react with a sudden re- sponse or over-correction, such as jerking the steering wheel to the right or left, or by slamming on the brakes This reaction may cause the vehicle to skid, swerve into oncoming traffic or run off the roadway Motorists can avoid sudden surprises by driv decreasing speed and inert:: ;i3 : their vehicle's space cti:[ti<,ll.
