TIP - A Safe Winter Driving Tip From the Nova Scotia RCMP


Know The Limits Of Your Vehicle


Many times, motorists driving four-wheel drive or all-wheel drive vehicles feel safer because of the improved traction and additional ground clearance.  It's important to keep in mind that stopping ability is not improved.  Four and all-wheel drive vehicles can reduce your chances of getting stuck, but they won't help you stop any better during slippery conditions.
