Visit www.dot.state.co.us for tips - like slow down in winter conditions, don’t use your cruise control on icy or snow-packed roads, maintain traction with gradual starts and stops and four-wheel-drive vehicles can’t stop better or faster on ice or snow (the heavier the vehicle, the greater the stopping distance even for 4WD SUVs).
