Driver safety tips to combat winter roads

Arnold Horowitz, President of DrivRite, a driver’s education program in Mishawaka says the biggest mistake he sees is teenagers not maintaining following distance. For the roads during the winter season, there should be 4 or 5 seconds between drivers.

“They think they can go to the speed limits regardless if its dry or wet or snow-covered pavement, and they just need to slow down. They have to use what they call a basic speed law where they drive according to the conditions not according to the limit,” says Horowitz.
