According to the professionals at Jim Fisher Volvo Cars Portland one of the best things you can do, whether driving on dry or icy roads, is to avoid distractions so you can concentrate on what you’re doing. Leave the gadgets at home or place them in the back seat before getting behind the wheel. Even eating while driving is a distraction that could have you ending up in the ditch or worse.

Another thing we’d like you to know is that even if you have an AWD vehicle, you shouldn’t rely on that to keep you safe. You might get a false sense of security thinking you don’t need to worry if all four wheels are pulling together. You should still be cautious on the road.

Icy roads can be deceptive. Sometimes, what may look like dry pavement can actually be ice. Underpasses, overpasses and bridges are particularly vulnerable to this illusion.
