OPERATING IN SNOW (Contd)
Operators must drive at reduced speeds and be prepared to meet sudden changes in
road conditions and traffic speeds. Maintain safe stopping distances. Pump brakes
gradually when stopping vehicle on ice or snow. Sudden stops will cause vehicle
wheels to lock, engine to stall, and loss of power steering. Failure to do this may result
in injury or death.
If vehicle gets stuck on ice or in snow, do not rock vehicle by shifting rapidly between
reverse and forward gears. This can cause power train damage.
If rear end skidding occurs:
Turn steering wheel (1) in direction of the skid.
Let up on accelerator pedal (2) and apply brake pedal (3).
