I think a lot of people want to be able to drive better and ensure safe driving during the winter season, as it is quite challenging. An easy way to improve driving safety is to choose high quality tyres that are in good condition. If you aim to drive mostly on icy roads, you should choose a set of studded tyres. With studded tyres you will have much better grip on ice and there are several new studded tyre options with different stud technology to ensure an excellent grip.
The added grip will also allow you to better take turns and corners. It will also allow you to reduce the braking distance. Another important thing to remember in the winter season is to drive slowly enough so that you can control your car and can stop without colliding. It is also good to practice winter driving. If you have a skid course close to where you live you can take a session there.
Make sure you have a set of high quality winter tyres that are in good condition when driving in winter season. Driving with summer tyres in winter is dangerous, regardless of how good of a driver you are.
