Always carry a survival pack
in the car, including food,
drink and a blanket.
Carry chains with you, as
well as old sacks or bits of
carpet which can prove a real
face-saver when you get
stuck -- in mud and rain as
well as snow and ice.
Ensure your phone battery
is fully charged, and you have
an in-car charger. Your
phone could be your only safe
contact for recovery.
Carry a shovel in case you
need to dig yourself out of
Consider fitting winter
tyres, and even if you don't,
have your summer tyres
checked. Winter driving
means tyres should have no
less than 3 millimetres of
remaining tread and prefer-
Even when it's not icy or
snowing, grip is at a real pre-
mium in winter conditions
and a tyre with only the legal
minimum tread depth dis-
places as much as 85 per cent
less water than a new tyre. If
your tyres are on the edge of
needing to be replaced, act
now rather than run the risk
of losing grip or aquaplaning
on the road.
Adjust your driving style to
the conditions, and be sen-
sible in rain, snow and ice.
While ice and snow are
obvious hazards, it's often the
invisible threat of black ice
that can cause the biggest
problems. Areas shaded from
the sun, like beside shelter
belts and on roads with
overarching evergreen trees,
are where black ice is most
likely to catch you out.
A clue you are on black ice
is when all goes quiet in the
car and you can't hear any
tyre noise. If you find your-
self in this situation, don't
brake or make any sudden
steering changes, but ease off
the accelerator and proceed
slowly and smoothly.
Skidding in snow or ice can
easily occur, even at low
speeds. If it does happen,
never brake. In the event of a
front-wheel skid in a front-
wheel drive car, come gently
off the accelerator and steer
the front wheels in the direc-
tion you wish to go.
For a rear wheel skid, steer
into the skid -- in the direc-
tion the rear of the car is
The stopping distance for a
car travelling at 50kmh is
more than twice as long in icy
weather as in normal con-
ditions, so keep a greater dis-
tance between you and the
car ahead. When driving in
slippery conditions, acceler-
ate, brake and change gear
smoothly, so traction is less
likely to be broken.
Cool shots: Photographer Grant Reaburn sent in these photos of
Molly the dog sheltering outside her snowed-in home in Puketitiri
Mr Reaburn, who lives at Puketitiri, said when he went to bed
about midnight on Sunday there was snow, but when he awoke
about 6.30am he was greeted by a winter wonderland, with snow
falling until at least noon.
He said two feet of snow had fallen in some places, and there had
been also been snow falls at Patoka.
