Winter roads can become hazardous quickly. As the months go on, so does the build up of snow and ice. When it is scraped off or removed, those piles will start to get high as well. Each snow storm can result with a drift that continues to get larger. When this happens, you will notice that the visibility when you take corners will decrease as well. Make sure that you adjust your driving, and take it easy when on the roads. If you cannot see anyone, they cannot see you as well. So make sure to be safe so you can reduce the chance of an accident.
Driving and taking a corner
When taking a corner or at an intersection, you might encounter a snow pile that is a few feet high. This will more than likely impair the visibility for you and other drivers. If you are turning, make sure to do so slowly. Inch ahead just slightly until you are able to see the traffic that you are driving in the same direction as. If you shoot out into the road, you increase the chance of an accident, because other drivers will not see you.
Remember to drive with your lights on as well. Having the lights on can reduce the distance that others might be able to see you at. It will reduce the chance of any collision or accident occurring when you drive.
