Driving Up Alpine Roads Tips

If you decided to go on a NSW snow holidays, you have to ensure your love one’s safety. You have to be careful driving in the snowy slopes because even the most experienced driver can never be too sure if he will meet an accident.

Some precautions while driving in the snow can help:

  • Observe all traffic rules for driving on snowy roads. Do not try to accelerate or brake suddenly. Braking suddenly can cause the front and rear tyres to lock and your car could go into a spin.
  • Keep a safe distance from the car in front and focus on the road at all times.
  • Do not brake while taking a turn or when cornering as it can cause the car to skid and you could lose control. Instead, try to apply the brake before you take the turn and always remember to brake gently.
  • Always remember to scrape all the snow from your car’s roof before you start driving. Snow on your car roof can dislodge as you drive and it can cause severe hazards for the other drivers on the road. It can also cause problems for you if it dislodges and falls on the windscreen obscuring your view of the road.
  • Infrequently travelled roads and exposed areas like bridges and shaded roads will be the first to be covered in snow. Try to avoid these roads as much as you can.
  • Always keep track of the weather reports and avoid areas with heavy snowfall. Even the most skilled drivers and the best cars have problems navigating snow covered roads.

One of the best holiday getaway that you can try on summer is wakeboarding.
