Now that I have your attention I’ll pass along a few driving tips. From personal experience over the last 24 hours I think Atlantans could use a few reminders when it comes to severe weather motoring. At CBS Atlanta we’ve covered several stories where drivers hit a patch of ice that sent them sliding sideways or worse. Many of these folks were in SUVs. PLEASE remember that SUV’s (for that matter all cars) are only as good as the people who operate them.
Manning the wheel of an AWD mechanical mastadon does NOT mean you are impervious to the occasional slip ‘n slide. Tire pressure (check every several days during cold weather ) and tire condition, can really impact how your vehicle handles.
This Alberta Clipper system, like many others, formed over Canada (apologies) so we’re fairly adept at moving through them
Safe driving everyone,
